Episode #074:

Whitney Allen | The Big Show





As a kid the Gracie Award-winning WHITNEY ALLEN wanted it all. To be a rock star, astronaut, explorer and radio host. Amazingly, she’s done ‘em all (almost!)─ and more! 

She started her radio journey in Eureka California at KATA, before moving to San Diego and shots at CHR, nostalgia, AC and her first taste of Country radio. Then came a call from Scott Shannon’s PIRATE RADIO in LA, before moving to market leader KIIS-FM. There, she met BLAIR GARNER, who was just launching his national country sensation “AFTER MIDNIGHT”, so she joined him and for 8 years hosted “After Midnight Weekends with Whitney Allen” on over 200 country stations. 

Now, she hosts her very own network show The Big Time with Whitney Allen weeknights, and The Big Time Saturday Night.






BONUS CONTENT:

Here's a great example of an on-air stunt which acknowledged a 'national' day, then turned into a fun video, strong social media content, and even media exposure!  Smart affiliates even got LOCAL media attention!



In this video (recorded OFF-AIR), Whitney's castmates take center stage in unique content with country artist Devin Dawson!
