Bobby Bones is already on the radio, in the podcast cue, on television screens, and in the bookstore. Where else could he land? That will the job of UTA to sniff out as the talent agency has signed Bones to its roster. UTA says it will work with Bones to build his career across several verticals, including radio, television, touring and books.
Radio is where Bones has his biggest platform. HHHis syndicated iHeartMedia morning show airs on 185 stations and is the top-rated in the country category with millions of listeners each month. It led to Bones becoming the youngest-ever inductee into the National Radio Hall of Fame.
Bones also founded the Nashville Podcast Network, a collection of podcasts that provide listeners with an inside look at Nashville’s lifestyle and pop culture, which is home to his popular BobbyCast that has had more than 20 million downloads since its launch.
Bones also recently launched 25 Whistles with Bobby Bones (A Football Podcast), a 25-episode series focused on college and NFL football. He hosts the podcast alongside singer-songwriter Adam Hambrick, Kickoff Kevin, and Producer Eddie.
On the television side, Bones currently serves as host of the USA Network competition series “Snake in the Grass.” He has previously been host and executive producer for a range of projects, including National Geographic’s television series “Breaking Bobby Bones” as well as “Opry,” the weekly program featuring exclusive highlights from the Grand Ole Opry stage. Bones has also turned up on raft of other TV shows, including as a mentor on ABC-TV’s “American Idol” for four seasons and winning “Dancing with the Stars” in 2018.
Bones has authored two best-selling books – “Bare Bones” and “Fall Until You Don’t: Fight. Grind. Repeat.” Based on that success, he also recently wrote his first-ever children’s book, “Stanley the Dog: The First Day of School.”
On the philanthropic front, UTA says Bones has raised more than $16 million for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and he has led charitable efforts for a range of causes, including natural disaster relief, COVID-19, frontline workers, veteran care, and he partnered with Purina to bring awareness to the benefits of service dogs in helping veterans with PTSD and other post-combat challenges.
Bones will continue to be represented by Red Light Management and The GreenRoom PR.
