iHeartMedia and Fuse Media are teaming up to televise the nationally syndicated hit radio show “Big Boy’s Neighborhood.” Starring morning air personality Big Boy of iHeartRadio’s Los Angeles urban contemporary station Real 92.3 (KRRL), the TV series will air weekdays on FM (Fuse Music) beginning July 30. Episodes will premiere the same day as the radio broadcast.
In a statement announcing the television partnership, Fuse Media president/CEO Michael Schwimmer said, “Music is a passion point for our young, multicultural audience and who better to provide a daily dose of the biggest names in music entertainment and breaking pop culture news than radio icon Big Boy. We look forward to bringing ‘Big Boy’s Neighborhood’ to FM and partnering with iHeartMedia on the type of cutting-edge entertainment his radio listeners have enjoyed for so many years.”
“This new partnership with Fuse is the continuation of an exciting trend of our iconic iHeartRadio personalities extending their reach to television,” added John Sykes, president of entertainment enterprises for iHeartMedia. “Big Boy is a legend in music and this is the next logical step as he extends his brand.”
