Townsquare Media and Compass Media Networks ink a multi-year extension of their programming partnership now covering 368 affiliates.

The offerings include seven daily programs across music genres including: CHR, Classic Rock, Country, Classic Hits, Hip-Hop, Hot AC, and Rock.

These syndicated offerings include "PopCrush Nights with Kayla Thomas" (CHR), "PopCrush Nights with Nicole Murray" (Hot AC), "Loudwire Nights" (Rock), "Taste of Country Nights" (Country), "The Night Shift with Craig Allen" (Classic Hits), "Ultimate Classic Rock with Joe Benson" (Classic Rock) and "XXL Higher Level Radio" (Hip-Hop).

"We are thrilled with the continued progress of this syndication partnership as witnessed by the continued growth in our affiliate base and audience levels," said Townsquare Media Local Media COO Erik Hellum.

Townsquare Media SVP of Content and Programming Kurt Johnson added, "Over seven and a half years ago we announced this partnership with two shows. Now with seven shows, our industry-leading websites and radio brands deliver fresh daily entertainment across a spectrum of formats. And we're excited to be announcing additional digital and on-air extensions in the coming weeks."

"In a very thoughtful and strategic way, we have built one of the largest daily entertainment platforms in national syndication," said Compass Media Networks CEO Peter Kosann. "This is a testament to the quality of the programming and the commitment of our team."
