Premiere Networks and Steve Harvey renew their long-term contract
– Premiere Networks today announced a new, extended long-term agreement with Steve Harvey, one of the world’s best-known and most sought-after artists.
As part of the new deal, the award-winning multimedia personality will continue in his current role as host of “The Steve Harvey Morning Show” – America’s #1 syndicated morning radio show. With over 15 years of syndication with Premiere, the program reaches millions of listeners on over 100 stations nationwide and is available on iHeartRadio.
Additionally, Harvey will continue to work with Premiere on a variety of projects, including the development and creation of new programming and promotions, community and charitable efforts, events, and more.
“I am pleased to continue my successful partnership with Premiere Networks and to host ‘The Steve Harvey Morning Show’ in the future,” said Steve Harvey. “Reaching this agreement further underscores my commitment to serving the community and the people. Humor is my gift, but it’s ultimately my connection to people that motivates me to host the #1 morning radio show for years to come. The show also allows me to help us engage politically, and allows me to motivate listeners and also provide spiritual moments. I’m thrilled to continue giving people the smiles and laughter they so desperately need during these uncertain times. »
“Steve is a cross-platform star and one of the most talented artists in the world,” said Julie Talbott, President of Premiere Networks. “He has the ability to entertain and engage audiences across all platforms with fun, humor and heart. We couldn’t be happier to extend our relationship for years to come.
Created by Harvey in September 2000, “The Steve Harvey Morning Show” joined Premiere Networks’ national lineup in 2005. Airing live from 6-10 a.m. ET Monday through Friday, Harvey and his co-hosts Shirley Strawberry, Nephew Tommy, Carla Ferrell, Junior, and J. Anthony Brown bring listeners inspirational advice, laughs, celebrity interviews, news, upbeat music, and more. For his work on the program, Harvey received the NAB Marconi Award for “Network/Union Personality of the Year” in 2013 and 2015, and he was inducted into the NAB Broadcasting Hall of Fame in 2014.
The deal was brokered and executed by Premiere President Julie Talbott and Steve Harvey Global Chief Operating Officer and General Counsel Brandon R. Williams.
