United Stations Radio Networks announced the lineup for their annual Holiday Specials targeted to the Classic Hits, Classic Rock and Adult Hits formats. The series known as Classic Artist Profiles is now in its second year of production and distribution. The programs are produced in-house at United Stations and will be hosted by Jim Ladd from KLOS-FM, Los Angeles.

Memorial Day: Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young May 19 – 26
July 4th: Billy Joel June 30 – July 6
