The CW Television Network and Clear Channel will partner to air four Clear Channel event franchises, including the iHeartRadio Festival in Las Vegas this September and the Jingle Ball concert series in November and December, according to the Calgary Herald.
On July 15, The CW will broadcast highlights from The iHeartRadio Ultimate Pool Party, which takes place June 29-30 in Miami. A two-day special from the iHeartRadio Festival will be announced in July.
Highlights from the 14 Jingle Ball concerts will air in December. Also, iHeartRadio’s occasional album release parties will air during release week for participating artists. Taylor Swift and Justin Timberlake were the inaugural performers for the latter franchise during their respective release weeks.
“This is something I’ve been discussing with Bob Pittman ever since I first came to Clear Channel nearly two years ago,” says John Sykes, president of Clear Channel Enterprises. “Clear Channel is more than just a radio company. We’re creating entertainment events that you’ll be able to listen to on the radio, stream online and now watch on TV. We were impressed by the appreciation [CW president] Mark Pedowitz had for our programming, and are excited to have a multi-tier broadcast partner like the CW working so closely with our entertainment team.”
Sykes added that Clear Channel is also developing two other TV specials for a to-be-determined broadcast partner.
