SkyWords Media is proud to announce their partnership with Ben Manilla Productions to represent Canada’s #1 rated Blues radio show – The BluesMobile with Elwood Blues.
SkyWords Media has been distributing radio content nationally for over 20 years, and will now be responsible for representing advertisers associated with the show, and distributing The BluesMobile itself to radio station affiliates across Canada.
In all markets where the show currently runs, it ranks as the number one radio program in its time slot. This success is due in part to the star power behind The BluesMobile, Elwood Blues of the legendary Blues Brothers. Elwood lends his voice to some of the commercials which air during the show and voices the program himself.
Frank Torres, President of SkyWords Media says “We are very pleased to distribute Elwood’s BluesMobile across Canada. Elwood’s show is consistently the highest ranking show in its daypart and is a perfect fit with our other blues brands. We know that affiliates and advertisers will both thrive from their relation to Canada’s original Blues Brother”.
The syndicated show airs across Canada and the United States, and Elwood’s BluesMobile has won the Silver Medal award for Best Regularly Scheduled Music Program from the 2007 New York Festivals International Radio Broadcasting Awards.
SkyWords Media is Canada’s largest independent radio network, providing radio content to over 130 radio stations coast to coast. SkyWords Media is owned by Torres Media, which also operates 101.9 DAWG FM in Ottawa.
