--Zach Sang to host new international weekend show - The Best of K-Pop with Zach Sang--
LOS ANGELES, March 15, 2023 – Premiere Networks announced today a partnership with multimedia phenomenon Zach Sang to expand distribution of The Zach Sang Show to international radio stations. The widely popular program, which has amassed more than a billion views on TikTok, more than 160 million views on YouTube and millions of podcast downloads, will be available as a four-hour weekday program for international-only radio stations, beginning May 1, 2023.
Broadcasting from Los Angeles, Sang will be joined by co-host and executive producer Jacob Cummings, formerly one of the highest-rated radio personalities in the United Arab Emirates on Channel 4 Dubai, as well as 91.9 Sea FM in Sunshine Coast, Australia and Nova 106.9 FM in Brisbane, Australia. Together, they’ll continue to feature a wide range of popular music, along with their signature interviews with the biggest names in entertainment and culture, which have attracted millions of fans across every corner of the globe. Affiliate stations will also have access to exclusive video content from the program.
As part of the agreement, Sang will also host a new, two-hour international weekend show, The Best of K-Pop with Zach Sang, launching Saturday, May 6, 2023. Each weekend, Sang will take listeners inside the world of K-Pop, showcasing the music, culture and news with the help of the most prominent artists in the genre. This show is built to entertain and bring non-K-Pop fans into the community, while still bringing active fans closer to the K-Pop idols they love through weekly exclusive interviews that only Sang can deliver.
“To build a daily, multiplatform show exclusively for radio stations all over the world is a dream come true, and to do it with one my closest friends and the brightest broadcaster I'll ever know, Jacob Cummings, is an honor,” shared Sang. “Plus, working with Tanya Juhasz and the whole crew at Premiere Networks and iHeartMedia is a luxury I never thought I'd have. I can't wait to work with each program director to properly personalize our show and win together.”
“There aren’t many moments in life where this level of excitement is felt,” said Cummings. “I’ve been in radio since I was 12 years old and what Zach, myself and the team are about to create is truly a once-in-a-lifetime moment! My passion for radio and creating engaging content runs so deep in my veins, and getting to work with Zach Sang, who shares the same passion, is truly a blessing. Zach and I can’t wait to put on display what we’ve spent our lifetimes building.”
“Zach Sang has built a loyal following of music artists, celebrities and fans alike,” said Julie Talbott, President of Premiere Networks. “His authentic and engaging brand connects with millions of listeners and followers across every platform, and we couldn’t be more excited to expand his reach around the world.”

About Zach Sang
Zach Sang is one of the most recognizable voices in media to teens and young adults all over the world. His success was self-created at age 14 when he went from grocery store bag boy to an internet radio star broadcasting nightly from his bedroom in Wayne, New Jersey. His show’s popularity landed him his first big gig with Nickelodeon where we would host dozens of broadcasts, including Nick's Orange Carpet and Kid’s Choice Awards Pre Show. Sang's time in digital radio and at Nickelodeon paved the way for the launch of his hugely successful, nationally syndicated FM radio show, which ran for 10 years reaching more than 80 markets across the U.S. and Canada. Over the years, Sang has created a space where culture shapers of all kinds feel comfortable opening up, and his interviews consistently make headlines with major outlets such as The New York Times, which described him as “one of the most crucial interviewers of contemporary pop stars.” He was also recently profiled by Al Roker for the TODAY show’s “Generation Next” segment. Sang has hosted the American Music Awards Pre-Show, was named Radio's Most Innovative at the age of 22 by Jacobs Media Research and is a proud St. Jude ambassador.
