“I’m happy and excited to sign a multi-year extension with one of the most dynamic and innovative companies in the world,” said Big Al. “I’ve learned so much in a short time about the strength of iHeart and I’ve met radio giants and artists that would make anyone blush. I’m still learning about all the areas that I can contribute to and I’m amazed by the many opportunities this role gives me to connect with the Denver community and do what I love."
