Comedian Dennis Miller Inks Long-Term Radio Contract
Representatives for Dennis Miller said Wednesday that the comedian has signed a new long-term deal with Dial Global to continue as host of radio’s The Dennis Miller Show.
Miller, the former commentator on Monday Night Football and former Weekend Update anchor for Saturday Night Live, celebrates his five-year anniversary as a talk-radio host on March 29.
Miller’s show launched with Westwood One in 2007 on about 80 stations, including in seven of the Top 10 markets. He’s now heard in all of the Top 24 markets and on more than 300 affiliates nationwide.
Miller’s famous guests on his radio show, heard weekdays in Los Angeles via replay from 8 p.m.-11 p.m. on KRLA 870-AM, have included Jerry Seinfeld, Steve Martin, Tom Hanks, Ted Nugent, Condoleezza Rice and Ann Coulter. Recently deceased Andrew Breitbart was a frequent guest and a fill-in host.
Terms of the deal weren’t disclosed.
“It has been a fine five years with a great and growing audience that I enjoy riffing with,” said Miller. “As I bask in the glorious wake of modest achievement, I look forward to many more years behind the microphone.”
