LOS ANGELES, CA, March 22, 2018 — Benztown, a global leader in radio imaging, voiceover, programming and jingles, announces that internationally syndicated hit weekend radio show Sunday Night Slow Jams has expanded to 150 total affiliates worldwide. The 150th affiliate is KNEX-FM in Laredo, TX.
Sunday Night Slow Jams, the #1 weekend radio show in America, is available to a wide variety of stations through three different formats: Rhythm/Urban, Top 40/Mainstream and Throwback.
R Dub!, Creator, Host and Producer of Sunday Night Slow Jams said: "It seems like yesterday, when I approached my PD at that little AM radio station in the desert with the concept for Sunday Night Slow Jams. I was only 17 years old; a junior in high school. He said yes, and the journey began. Not a day goes by that I don't pinch myself, grateful that my little labor of love can now be heard on 150 radio stations in 14 countries.”
R Dub! added: “We couldn't have reached this milestone if it weren't for the awesome efforts of the team, including the folks at Benztown and Slow Jams "Special Ops" Mark Wilson. I especially want to thank our listeners, who've made Sunday Night Slow Jams one of the highest-rated programs in the country, and all of the awesome Program Directors who still believe that their stations should be the destination for this exciting, inspiring, and special programming."
Mark Wilson, Vice President, Affiliate Sales, Sunday Night Slow Jams, said: "Sunday Night Slow Jams wins for our affiliate partners across three different formats with localized, engaging appointment listening content. R Dub! is the type of rare talent that actually becomes a tangible part of each station's roster. Next stop: 200 stations!"
Now with a weeknight version of Sunday Night Slow Jams and R Dub!’s All-Slow Jams online channel, Slow Jams currently reaches over three million consumers per week and is heard in 14 countries, including the U.S. In addition to Sunday's three format choices, R Dub! produces a weeknight version of Slow Jams, which airs Monday through Thursday from 10PM-12M.
Along with his work on Sunday Night Slow Jams, R Dub! is Director of Programming for XHTZ and XHRM in San Diego, CA, and is President of Slow Jams 4 Kids clean water initiative.
