Celebrity gossip blogger Perez Hilton is partnering with CBS Radio on a variety of content initiatives, including a new podcast.
“The PHP: Perez Hilton Podcast,” co-hosted by Hilton and radio personality Chris Booker, launched on Thursday exclusively through podcast network Play.it, which also features content from CBS Radio and CBS Local Digital Media.
In addition, Hilton’s daily celebrity news feature “Radio Perez,” syndicated by C Student Entertainment, will be featured on 20 CBS radio stations.
“Excited does not begin to describe my overflowing enthusiasm for my new partnership with CBS Radio,” said Hilton. “FUN is a great way to describe ‘The PHP: Perez Hilton Podcast’ on Play.it.”
“Our relationship with Perez is a terrific example of our audiences’ passion for unique and engaging content suited for their on-demand lifestyle, as well as their desire for compelling entertainment news heard live on their favorite FM music stations,” said Chris Oliviero, Executive Vice President of Programming for CBS Radio. “This combined platform of Play.it and major market radio stations will provide Perez with another outstanding opportunity to stay connected to his loyal fans.”
