One of the industry’s biggest annual musical events is coming to TBS, TNT and truTV. Turner Broadcasting System, Inc. has forged a multi-year deal with iHeartMedia, Inc. for the three networks to be the new television home for the iHeartRadio Music Awards. TBS, TNT and truTV will present a live simulcast of the annual event, which celebrates the world’s best music and performers during a truly unforgettable night. The show will also be broadcast live on iHeartMedia radio stations nationwide and across TBS, TNT, truTV and iHeartRadio’s digital platforms.
The Turner networks’ first presentation of the iHeartRadio Music Awards is one of many major live events set to air on the networks next spring. The show is set to take place Sunday, April 3, 2016, airing between TBS’s exclusive coverage of the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship Final Four on April 2 and the network’s first-ever telecast of the National Championship game on April 4. Also slated for spring 2016 are the NBA Playoffs, with TNT televising more games than any other network. And Turner, in partnership with CBS Sports, provides exclusive live coverage of every game of the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship in its entirety across TBS, TNT, truTV and CBS.
