Radio Disney will premiere “The Alli Simpson Show,” a weekly two-hour fashion and lifestyle show hosted by 16-year-old entertainment personality/recording artist Alli Simpson, on FRIDAY, JANUARY 16 (9:00 p.m., ET / 6:00 p.m., PT). Simpson, who recently co-hosted the “Radio Disney’s Family VIP Birthday” special telecast on Disney Channel, will also be the focus of a Radio Disney “Take Over” on Thursday, January 15 (6:00 p.m., ET / 3:00 p.m., PT). Radio Disney is available on Sirius/XM, Harman’s Aha Radio, Slacker and ShowMobile, and via the WATCH Disney app, among other platforms.
“Alli Simpson has been a friend of Radio Disney for quite some time, and we’ve always enjoyed having her engaging, international personality on-air. We’re thrilled to be able to share her unique experiences and relatable, fun take on life with our listeners – and to call her family,” said Phil Guerini, VP, Programming and General Manager, Radio Disney.
“The Alli Simpson Show,” executive-produced by Matt Graham, will feature the social media star’s unique perspective on the latest trends in music and fashion, celebrity and teen influencer interviews, and conversations with listeners. In addition to the two-hour show, Simpson will also make appearances at select Radio Disney events. She will also be a regular contributor to Disney.com/Style and Disney.com/Playlist, providing lifestyle and fashion tips, as well as discussing her favorite current music to readers.
“Radio Disney is the best place find out about the newest young names in entertainment, so I’m excited to host ‘The Alli Simpson Show’ as a platform to celebrate my peers,” said Simpson. “I can’t wait to join the team and look forward to connecting with Radio Disney’s listeners and my fans on a more personal level.”
A native of Australia’s Gold Coast, Simpson made her foray into the entertainment business after seeing the success of her brother, singer-songwriter Cody Simpson. She launched her YouTube channel where she posts health and beauty tutorials, as well as original and cover songs, in 2009 and has since gained nearly 500,000 subscribers and over 36 million views. Her connection with her young fans spans multiple social media platforms, with over four million combined followers on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
