KQIE – Old School 104.7 in Riverside-San Bernardino, CA marks the 20th California radio station to add Sunday Night Slow Jams to their weekend lineup, joining stations in cities like San Diego, Sacramento and Fresno. Old School 104.7 is just the latest of over 200 radio stations nationwide who dedicate their Sunday nights to serving their listeners with love and a hearty dose of R Dub!, who keeps friends and families connected each week with special dedications and requests.
It was just this Tuesday that Old School 104.7 Director of Programming Brian “Big Bear” Davis and R Dub! sealed a deal that would bring the I.E. Sunday Night Slow Jams each week, in the 8PM-12M slot.
Davis is one of the scores of radio programmers who are rushing to lock down America’s #1 rated weekend show this year, as the company’s syndicator, Benztown Radio Networks, continues to lock down market after market.
“The word is out,” said Mark Wilson, VP of Affiliate Relations for Fusion Radio Networks, a Benztown partner. “Slow Jams is landing in every market and the station that has it wins. End of story.”
And Wilson’s words come with merit, as double-digit shares continue to pour in, book after book, for the popular weekend dedication show.
R Dub!, host and creator of Sunday Night Slow Jams said, “I love the I.E! Southern California is my home, and I’ve been waiting years to come back to the I.E. I’m so happy this day is finally here, and it’s great working with Big Bear and my buddy Jimmy Reyes again!”
R Dub! worked with Reyes from 2007 – 2009 at the now defunct Hot 92.3 Los Angeles.
“Slow Jams connects with listeners unlike any other program I’ve heard.” said Dave “Chachi” Denes, president of Benztown Radio Networks. “Their passion and engagement transcends to incredible ratings.”
Sunday Night Slow Jams airs Sunday nights from 8pm til 12m on the I.E.’s Old School 104.7 starting July 7th. You can listen live and find out more about Old School 104.7 HERE.
