WTTR Radio, AM1470, has acquired the rights to Casey Kasem's American Top 40: the 70s. The three hour program will air each Saturday from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. and will repeat on Sundays from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

A radio icon for more than 50 years, Kasem founded the radio staple American Top 40, which continues to be the most relevant source for pop music hits.

"This is the perfect fit for our listeners," said WTTR General Manager and CEO of Hilltop Communications, LLC, Jeff Laird. "Casey's program embodies the essence of the 1970s which reaches a large segment of our target audience. The 70s included super-bands such as The Eagles, Chicago, and The Rolling Stones, as well as solo artists like Eric Clapton, Donna Summer, and Elton John."

Kasem's American Top 40 is an entertainment product of Premiere Networks which syndicates 90 radio programs to more than 5,000 radio affiliate stations.
