CBS Radio and United Stations Radio Networks announced today they will work together to create and syndicate a new program, Scott Shannon Presents: America's Greatest Hits. The four-hour weekend show will debut the weekend of October 18th on CBS Radio's 10 Classic Hits stations across the country, including WCBS-FM in New York.
Each hour of America's Greatest Hits will be highlighted by artist interviews, song countdowns, one-hit-wonders and commentary from Shannon himself, among other features. Shannon previously was the founder and voice of the nationally distributed "True Oldies? channel, which was broadcast on more than 100 stations nationwide from 2004-14. His career has spanned more than four decades, having spent in excess of 25 years as a broadcaster in New York.
?I love the medium of radioev, everybody knows that, and I?ll grab any chance possible to play the greatest hits of all time and tell stories about the artists, and the songs, and the era that they come from,? said Shannon.
