Westwood One and talk host Michael Savage re-up, with a new deal that will keep The Savage Nation in national syndication for the foreseeable future.
Concurrent with the renewal announcement, Savage has unveiled a new $100,000 scholarship fund for conservative college students which will grant five recipients two-year awards, totaling $10,000 annually.
The scholarship winners will be selected through an essay contest entitled What Does It Mean to Be an American? that debuts on Savage’s show tomorrow (1/15).
“We are thrilled to continue this long-standing relationship with Michael and look forward to the continued success of the show,” said John Dickey, EVP/Content and Programming. “Michael has maintained his position as not just a trusted voice in radio, but as a cultural icon.”
The Savage Nation currently airs on a reported 200 affiliates nationwide, including 60 Cumulus Media-owned and operated stations.
