CUMULUS MEDIA Signs Perennial Nashville Radio Favorite Phil Valentine to a New Long-Term Contract as Host of WWTN-FM’s “The Phil Valentine Show” Valentine to Launch Upcoming Projects With Cumulus Nashville, Including Podcast, “PodGOATS”, Featuring Phil and His Son Campbell Valentine, Available NOW!
Nashville, TN, May 17, 2019 – CUMULUS MEDIA announces that it has signed popular Nashville radio personality Phil Valentine to a new long-term contract as host of 99.7 SuperTalk WWTN-FM’s “The Phil Valentine Show”. “The Phil Valentine Show” debuted over 24 years ago and remains a top-rated program on Cumulus Nashville’s WWTN-FM, Middle Tennessee’s leading news talk radio station. The show airs weekdays from 3pm-7pm on 99.7 SuperTalk WWTN-FM.
In addition to his award-winning afternoon show on WWTN-FM, Valentine will work with Cumulus Nashville on a variety of projects, including the development and creation of original content podcasts, and other multimedia projects and events. The first in a series of podcasts to launch is PodGOATS, hosted by newcomer Campbell Valentine and co-hosted by Phil Valentine (Campbell’s father). PodGOATS debuted in February, and is the first podcast presented by Cumulus Nashville. It is a dynamic conversation between a Baby Boomer and a Millennial with thought-provoking and hilarious discussions on everything from what they would possibly do if the grid went down, to spies, to the top historical events that changed the world to religion. The father-son duo’s interests are broad and their opinions are sometimes different, but both bring their own generation’s take to the table. Episodes are available now at https://www.podgoats.com/ and on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, TuneIn, Audioboom and other podcast services. New episodes are available on Wednesdays and Sundays.
Allison Warren, Vice President/Market Manager, Cumulus Media Nashville, said: “Phil Valentine is a tremendous talent and has an incredible connection with our audience and our clients. We are excited to extend our partnership with Phil, continuing to deliver compelling content across any and every platform.”
Phil Valentine noted: “I was the morning guy when we launched SuperTalk 99.7WTN back in 1995. That’s where I started in talk radio. I plan to finish my career at WTN sometime way down the road. This is home, and I’m glad to be here for the long haul.” Campbell Valentine added: “My dad started at WTN the week I was born, so it just feels right to be a small part of the team now. Cumulus and WWTN provide a broad local and regional platform and I am excited that PodGOATS will be distributed through their platform. Co-hosting an original show with my dad, Phil, has been extremely rewarding for a variety of reasons. I am looking forward to the endless possibilities this partnership with Cumulus Nashville presents.”
