Rebranded Night Show to Reflect Contemporary Country-Music Lifestyle
CUMULUS MEDIA’s Westwood One announces a new syndicated radio show, Nights with Elaina, hosted by award-winning radio and podcast host Elaina Smith, launching on February 3, 2020. Nights with Elaina will be a fast-paced escape from the craziness of the day, a place to laugh, get real and have fun, listener interaction, and, most importantly, listen to great music alongside the biggest names in Country music.
Elaina has become one of the strongest female presences in Country Radio, having hosted shows in San Diego, Florida, and on over 100 stations simultaneously on NASH Nights Live, as well as hosting the syndicated weekend show, With Elaina and the award-winning podcast Breaking Thru with Elaina. Elaina is laser-focused on bringing her listeners as close as possible to Nashville and their favorite country personalities; she has interviewed more artists and performers than most broadcasters do in their entire career.
“I’ve been lucky enough to have spent the last six years of my life with the best country music fans in the nation every single weeknight, and I’m so excited to have the opportunity to continue connecting with them with a new show, Nights with Elaina,” said Elaina Smith. “If there is one thing I’ve learned that listeners and stars have in common, it’s that we’re all just trying to figure out life and have fun while doing it.”
“Today’s Country music genre is young, fresh and modern, and Nights with Elaina fits the bill perfectly,” said Charles Steinhauer, Chief Operating Officer, Westwood One. “Elaina is a force of nature when it comes to connecting with her listeners and some of the biggest names in entertainment today. She’s ‘always-on’ and available to be heard every weekday night, over the weekend, and on-demand with her podcast and socials, making Elaina the quintessential modern broadcast personality.”
