iHeartRadio Music Awards Move Networks Again, Will Air on Fox in 2019

Annual show had previously run on Turner networks and NBC

The iHeartRadio Music Awards are changing networks again.

The annual award show is moving to Fox for next year after airing the last three years on Turner’s cable networks TNT, TBS and TruTV. The 2019 event will air Thursday, March 14 at 8 p.m. ET/PT from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

This is the third different network for the show, which only launched in 2014. NBC aired the first two editions, with the Turner networks simulcasting the last three.

“There’s no more powerful brand in the business than iHeartRadio,” said Rob Wade, president, alternative entertainment and specials, Fox. “iHeartRadio is fans’ first stop to listen to their favorite artists and find the next breakout star. We’re proud to be their partner as we honor this year’s biggest music artists.”

The event will once again broadcast live simultaneously on iHeartMedia radio stations nationwide and on iHeartRadio, the all-in-one digital music, podcast, on-demand and live streaming radio service.

“This is a show that is truly controlled by music fans, because it celebrates the artists and songs that they listened to all year long on our 850 broadcast radio stations and the iHeartRadio app,” said John Sykes, president of entertainment enterprises for iHeartMedia. “Fox has established itself as a premier television destination for music fans, which has made it a natural home for our Awards.”
