DONNY DOMINATES THE GLOBE
The Donny Osmond Show, the daily radio program from McVay Syndication, has launched in Australia.
The Donny Osmond Radio Show recently launched in Perth and Canberra with the Capital Radio Networks of Australia. The show’s roster will be enlarged by two more radio stations, effective June 1, 2010. According to Don Dawkins, Program Director for the group, “We’re delighted to have Donny Osmond on in Australia. He’s an entertainment icon who’s toured our country and entertained Australians for a long time. We believe the Donny Osmond Show will be great addition to our various brands.” Mike McVay added “I’m thrilled to be working with Capital Radio Networks in Australia. They are well established broadcasters and, along with Orbyt in Canada and Citadel in the USA, enable us to expand the Donny Osmond brand even further around the world.” McVay added, “We’re currently in discussions to launch the show in the UK”.
During his career, Osmond has been a singer, actor, triple-threat television series host (talk show, game show and variety show), best-selling author, commercial spokesperson, motivational speaker and even a race car driver.
Osmond began capturing America’s heart at the age of four, joining his brothers as a regular on NBC. Soon after, The Osmond’s were recording and touring internationally and Osmond-Mania swept the world. A stellar solo career ensued and was followed by hit records with his sister Marie, totaling 80 million records sold and still counting. That pairing led to the ABC launch of The Donny & Marie Show, one of the most successful variety series ever to air on American television. Since September 2008, the duo has been performing weekly to sellout crowds at The Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas. Originally intended as a limited six-month engagement, their show was recently extended through 2012 due to unprecedented worldwide demand. Osmond is the current champion of Dancing with the Stars, the most-watched show on US television, which was seen by 35 million television viewers each week during the 2009 season.
Citadel Media is McVay Syndication’s partner in the United States. The strength of the 24/7 Citadel AC channel expanded the Osmond roster to more than 70 radio stations across America. The Donny Osmond Radio Show is represented in Canada by Orbyt Media and is heard across the nation including Toronto, Edmonton, Hamilton and London.
