VH1 Classic Rock Nights will kick off later this month, hopefully on a radio station near you. Here is the announcement: VH1 Classic and Westwood One have announced "VH1 Classic Rock Nights," the new syndicated nightly radio show hosted by classic rock radio veteran, Eddie Webb.

Beginning Monday, May 17, the show will air weeknights from 7:00pm -- 12:00am ET live from VH1 Classic's state-of-the art studio in New York. During its first week, "VH1 Classic Rock Nights" will welcome guests Ray Manzarek and John Densmore of The Doors, Mick Jones of Foreigner and Paul Rodgers of Free and Bad Company who will help kick things off on day one. At launch, "VH1 Classic Rock Nights" will be available in 20 markets.

"VH1 Classic Rock Nights" will offer fans of classic rock the music and artists they love each night with radio-friendly music programming, new in-studio interviews with the biggest names in classic rock, road reports from the hottest tours, promotions and giveaways, and vintage performances and interviews from VH1 Classic's vast classic rock archives.

"First and foremost, this show is going to be about the music. Fans of classic rock are some of the most passionate groups out there, which is why we've decided to extend our highly-regarded VH1 Classic brand to a nightly radio show," said Tom Calderone, President, VH1 & VH1 Classic. "VH1 Classic viewers have come to love our music programming and appreciate the access we have to top artists. Now they can experience all that and more every night on the radio with 'VH1 Classic Rock Nights.'"

"VH1 Classic Rock Nights" will also offer listeners several ways to interact with the station and host, Eddie Webb. In addition to a live studio hotline for call-in requests, the show's Web site VH1ClassicRockNights.com will feature streaming audio and video from in- studio interviews, news, links to affiliate sites and more. Listeners can also connect to the show via Facebook, Twitter and MySpace.

"When you combine legendary artists, a powerhouse brand and an energetic, dynamic host you strike radio gold," said Gary Schonfeld, President Westwood One Network. "We are thrilled to partner with VH1 Classic to bring what is sure to be a massive hit show to our affiliates and advertisers nationwide."

Cumulus Media has partnered with "VH1 Classic Rock Nights" to broadcast the live radio show to markets throughout the country.
