Jackie Kajzer, better known as Full Metal Jackie, has announced the launch of Full Metal Jackie Radio, a new hard rock and heavy metal station on iHeartRadio, Clear Channel's industry-leading digital radio platform. The station will feature music from such bands as SLAYER, METALLICA, LAMB OF GOD, SLIPKNOT, PANTERA, BLACK SABBATH and more.
"We are excited to expand the Full Metal Jackie brand from a two-hour show to a 24/7 hard rock and heavy metal destination on iHeartRadio," said Tim Herbster, Vice President of Special Programming Projects for Clear Channel Media And Entertainment. "Jackie brings a wealth of experience to this genre and is a format expert — she is the perfect choice to help curate and host our 24/7 iHeartRadio channel featuring exclusive interviews and guest appearances by all your favorite metal stars."
Full Metal Jackie has become known nationally as a metal personality and as the creator/host of the two hour syndicated hard rock and heavy metal show distributed by Envision Radio Networks. Full Metal Jackie is also the author of the popular heavy metal book "Full Metal Jackie Certified: The 50 Most Influential Heavy Metal Songs Of The '80s And The True Stories Behind Their Lyrics", which is available in stores and online.
The iHeartRadio channel will feature classic metal artists that created the genre right up to today's new generation of head bangers. In addition, Full Metal Jackie Radio will feature exclusive interviews with key artists in the genre as well as broadcast the popular show from the Envision Rock Networks "Full Metal Jackie", hosted by Jackie Kajzer, on Mondays at 7 p.m. EST and Thursday at 3 p.m. EST.
Full Metal Jackie's radio show will join a lineup of shows hosted by a rotation of popular artists in the genre to be announced soon.
"I was very excited to create this channel," said Kajzer. "I've been hosting my two-hour show for over six years with Envision Networks and listeners have always said they wanted a longer show, or other places to listen to it during the week. This is such an important genre with a dedicated following, so it's great that iHeartRadio believes in it enough to give us a 24/7 channel!"
Heavy metal fans can listen to Full Metal Jackie Radio 24/7 on iHeartRadio at this location. iHeartRadio delivers everything listeners want in one free, fully-integrated service: instant access to more than 1,500 of the nation's most popular live broadcast and digital-only radio stations from 150 cities, plus user-created custom stations inspired by favorite artists and songs.
The launch party for the new Full Metal Jackie channel on iHeartRadio will take place this Saturday at the kick-off of the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival at San Manuel Amphitheater in San Bernardino, California.
