Rocker Nikki Sixx has announced plans to step down as host of and end his syndicated Premiere Networks/iHeartRadio radio programs, "Sixx Sense with Nikki Sixx," "The Side Show Countdown with Nikki Sixx" and "The Side Show Classic with Nikki Sixx" at the end of this year to focus on multiple new endeavors in 2018. His final broadcast will be on December 31. Launched at the beginning of 2010, his flagship radio program "Sixx Sense" is distributed to more than 130 stations, boasting nearly 3 million global weekly listeners.

Premiere Networks President Julie Talbott stated, "When we first partnered with Nikki in 2010, we set out to create a unique program from the perspective of true rock star, and that's exactly what we did. We're proud of the work we did together to make Sixx Sense one of the most-widely-syndicated Rock radio programs in the country, while establishing the ultimate platforms for rock music fans, as well as new and established artists. It's been a pleasure working with Nikki, and we wish him all the best."

"I grew up discovering music on the radio," explained Sixx. "So to host my own show over the nearly eight years of Sixx Sense was beyond my wildest dreams. I could not have done it without my amazing team in the studio, or the guests, musicians, and listeners that brought the show to life. It's been an inspirational journey and I'll always be a fan of the medium, but it's time to shift gears outside the realm of solely radio. I'm in the process of developing new and unique programming and ventures across multiple platforms. But I'm really gonna miss Sixx Sense."

Sixx is stepping down from his hosting duties to focus on myriad new endeavors in 2018 including his photography career, television endeavors and the Broadway adaptation of his New York Times Bestselling memoir "The Heroin Diaries: A Year In The Life of a Shattered Rockstar."
