Cumulus Media signs Nashville radio personality Phil Valentine to a new long-term contract as host of News/Talk WWTN-FM (99.7 SuperTalk)'s "The Phil Valentine Show." The program debuted over 24 years ago and airs weekdays from 3-7pm on WWTN. In addition to his afternoon show, Valentine will work with Cumulus Nashville on a variety of projects, including the development and creation of original content podcasts, and other multimedia projects and events.

The first in a series of podcasts to launch is PodGOATS, hosted by newcomer Campbell Valentine and co-hosted by Phil Valentine (Campbell's father). PodGOATS debuted in February, and is the first podcast from Cumulus Nashville. It's a conversation between a Baby Boomer and a Millennial with discussions on everything from what they would possibly do if the grid went down, to spies, to the top historical events that changed the world to religion. New episodes are available on Wednesdays and Sundays.

Cumulus Media Nashville VP/Market Manager Allison Warren said, "Phil Valentine is a tremendous talent and has an incredible connection with our audience and our clients. We are excited to extend our partnership with Phil, continuing to deliver compelling content across any and every platform."

Valentine added, "I was the morning guy when we launched SuperTalk 99.7WTN back in 1995. That's where I started in talk radio. I plan to finish my career at WTN sometime way down the road. This is home, and I'm glad to be here for the long haul."

Campbell Valentine added: "My dad started at WTN the week I was born, so it just feels right to be a small part of the team now. Cumulus and WWTN provide a broad local and regional platform and I am excited that PodGOATS will be distributed through their platform. Co-hosting an original show with my dad, Phil, has been extremely rewarding for a variety of reasons. I am looking forward to the endless possibilities this partnership with Cumulus Nashville presents."
