iHeartMedia and syndicated morning host Jeff “Woody” Fife announced today a long-term contract extension that will keep “The Woody Show” solidly headquartered in mornings at iHeartMedia Los Angeles’ ALT 98.7 and nationally syndicated by Premiere Networks until 2028.
Jeff “Woody” Fife is the host of “The Woody Show.” The 25-year radio veteran came to ALT 98.7 in April 2014 and has since redefined the morning show landscape in Los Angeles. “The Woody Show” is currently the #1 show in the market with P18-34, P18-49 and P25-54. Prior to its move to Los Angeles, “The Woody Show” had major success at KPNT-FM in St. Louis, WKQK-FM in Chicago and KITS-FM in San Francisco. Woody’s painfully honest and no- fluff/no-hype broadcasting style defines his unique appeal and deep connection with the show’s loyal fan base.
“Woody is one-of-a-kind — and it shows in his ratings success, in LA, across the country on the iHeartRadio digital service, locally in key markets and on our other iHeart platforms,” said Bob Pittman, Chairman and CEO of iHeartMedia. Inc. “His unique talent combined with his unbelievable work ethic are key to his success and we are delighted to continue this journey with him.”
“Woody is a true morning show savage,” said Lisa Worden, Vice President of Rock and Alternative for iHeartMedia Inc. and Program Director for ALT 98.7. “There is no one better to anchor mornings on our flagship ALT 98.7, and his commitment to excellence is bar none. And LA agrees! #ALLIN on ‘The Woody Show!’”
“I am thrilled to stay ‘work married’ to iHeartMedia. This has been, and will continue to be, one of my longest and healthiest relationships,” said Woody. “I wouldn’t be able to do what I’ve done to this point without the incredible support of people like Bob Pittman, Kevin LeGrett, Tom Poleman, Greg Ashlock and Lisa Worden. There isn’t another company better positioned, with a clearer vision for the future than iHeartMedia, and I’m beyond grateful to be a part of that.”
“The Woody Show” is syndicated nationally by Premiere Networks in more than 30 markets including Philadelphia, Phoenix, Portland, Las Vegas, Austin, Kansas City, Raleigh-Durham, Indianapolis and New Orleans.
