The Bobby Bones Show is a radio morning show broadcast in Nashville, Tennessee, on The BIG 98 WSIX-FM 97.9 and syndicated in Austin, Texas; Las Vegas, Nevada; Wichita, Kansas; Amarillo, Texas; Oklahoma Lubbock, Texas; Augusta, Georgia; Waco, Texas; Tuscaloosa, Alabama; Beaumont, Texas; Albany, Georgia Washington, D.C.; Spokane, Washington; Tampa, Florida; Tucson, Arizona; Greensboro, North Carolina; Sacramento, California; Boston and Cheyenne, Wyoming.[1] Bobby Bones is accompanied by co-hosts Lunchbox, Amy, Eddie, and Alayna. Jay Shannon is program director. According to Clear Channel Radio, the show is the number one rated morning show in Austin, Wichita, Amarillo, and Lubbock; though regarding the Austin market it is not always the case due to heavy competition from rival radio shows - notably the Dudley and Bob Morning Show on rival station 93.7 KLBJ FM "The Rock of Austin." The morning show runs on weekdays from 5 AM to 10 AM.[2] On July 18, 2011, it was announced that Bobby signed a three-year extension to do mornings for Clear Channel's Kiss 96.7 KHFI, and also signed a deal with Premiere Networks for syndication rights.[3]
