Westwood One has entered into a multi-year, extended partnership with Kix Brooks, host of American Country Countdown, as he simultaneously celebrates his 10-year anniversary with the show.

“Ten years ago when I was offered the opportunity to host American Country Countdown, I thought ‘Wow I don’t know much about talking on the radio, but I love this business, and I love great songs and talent. I’ll get to spend time with so many friends I never see anymore. This could be fun!” Brooks said.

“I can’t believe how the time has flown, and I’m blown away to think that so many station owners have trusted me with their airwaves, and so many listeners have made me a part of their weekends,” he continued. “And now Cumulus has flattered me again, by asking me to continue with the show for years to come. I consider this to be a huge responsibility, and I look forward to sharing my experiences, along with the lives and music of our great Country artists. I will try my best to make sure every week the listeners out there are having as much fun as I am!”

“Extending our partnership with Kix is a no-brainer,” said Suzanne Grimes, Westwood One’s President and EVP, Corporate Marketing for Cumulus. “He’s more than a country legend—his lifestyle and entertainment brands touch millions beyond the country space. Plus, our listeners and our clients just adore him. We look forward to extending our relationship working with Kix on multiple new projects.”
