NASH Icon Partners With Bob Kingsley For ACC-Rewind

NASH today announced the launch of an extension of its nationally syndicated weekend show American Country Countdown hosted by Kix Brooks.

Bob Kingsley
NASH’s new nationally syndicated weekend show, American Country Countdown Rewind with Bob Kingsley, extends the Tiffany brand of American Country Countdown and reunites Kingsley with the brand to bring Country fans closer to the iconic artists of the last 25 years. American Country Countdown Rewind with Bob Kingsley brings back American Country Countdown shows of the past and the most iconic moments of Country music… all hosted by the most listened-to voice in Country music history, Bob Kingsley.

The three-hour Countdown program will debut the weekend of May 2-3, 2015, on all Cumulus-owned NASH Icon stations, as well as select NASH branded stations. The show is available now to all stations and markets on a first come, first served basis through Westwood One, which will handle syndication of this new American Country Countdown product. The show is offered to stations for airing on Saturday or Sunday in the 6:00 a.m. to Midnight window.

Country Radio Hall of Famer Kingsley also hosts the long-running Bob Kingsley’s Country Top 40 (, a popular weekly show syndicated by Westwood One that attracts and engages legions of listeners and loyal fans across the country.

"I am first and foremost a fan of Country music," said Kingsley, "and I'm delighted that we're opening the vaults of ACC during one of Country's great eras. These shows spotlight both Hall of Famers and exciting young acts and, as always, my role is part tour guide, part storyteller. What could be better than being part of the weekend of millions of Country fans? How about doing it twice? I'm looking forward to the launch of American Country Countdown Rewind with me!"

Kingsley was named American Country Countdown’s producer in 1974, and took over as host four years later. His long and successful run as host set the stage for modern-day syndication, and with the formation of KCCS Productions, he and his wife and partner Nan Kingsley established a highly successful business approach where they distributed and retained ownership of the content created for the show. Kingsley’s career entered new territory in 2006 with the launch of Bob Kingsley’s Country Top 40, a show KCCS solely owned and distributed, partnering with Dial Global, now Westwood One, for national ad sales.

His wins as the CMA's National Broadcast Personality of the Year awards in 2001 and 2003 and his 2006 Academy of Country Music Award for On-Air Personality-National showed his impressive staying power, bookending over 40 years of industry honors that began with 1966 and 1967 trophies as the ACM’s Radio Personality of the Year, during his tenure on-air at KGBS in Los Angeles. Bob Kingsley’s Country Top 40 can be heard currently on more than 350 radio stations around the world.
