Looks like we might be seeing much more of Blake Shelton and Reba McEntire as co-hosts. CBS, the Academy of Country Music and Dick Clark Productions announced this morning that they have agreed to a new 10-year contract to broadcast the ACM awards on CBS through to 2021.
The agreement further extends their successful partnership they’ve had together since 1998.
“The Academy of Country Music represents a highly valued partnership for our company and the awards show is one of the marquee broadcasts on our network,” said Leslie Moonves, President and CEO, CBS Corporation. “It is an entertainment event that continues to grow in scope and popularity, and we look forward to working with the ACM and dick clark productions to build on this great momentum over the next decade.”
In addition to the ACM award broadcasts, the contract also includes the continued broadcast of yearly 2-hour ACM specials.
