Cody Alan Pledges Equal Play For Females On CMT Radio Live

Cody Alan made an announcement on his socials yesterday (Feb. 6) that his weeknight radio show, CMT Radio Live, has pledged to go 50/50 with equal play for both female and male artists as part of the CMT Equal Play Campaign. CMT Radio Live airs weeknights 7 pm-12 midnight and at

The move follows CMT’s recent announcement to establish a 50/50 programming policy for music videos from female artists on both its CMT and CMT Music channels. Of the full 29-hour primetime video hours across CMT’s platforms, female artists will account for half of those videos aired, an increase from its previous 40/60 ratio.

In January, CMT added a deal point to its radio distribution partnership extension which allows CMT to impact programming on over 230 stations. CMT’s Next Women of Country: Artist of the Month on-air feature allows CMT control of one spin per week for rising female artists, directly increasing airplay for females and the country charts.
