Rick Dees Weekly Top 40
Rick Dees began his Weekly Top 40 Countdown, still currently in syndication, in September 1983; the show was created after Dees' station, KIIS, lost American Top 40 to a rival station over the playing of network commercial. The Rick Dees' Weekly Top 40 is now heard each weekend in over 200 cities worldwide and the Armed Forces Radio Network.
Rick Dees Weekly Top 40 airs on The Knack every Sunday from 6:00am – 10:00am.
Ryan Seacrest- AT40
On January 10, 2004, Ryan Seacrest took over the hosting duties of American Top 40 from Casey Kasem.
With the host change, AT40 underwent a makeover, using a new theme song and introducing several new features. These extras included interviews with celebrities, a gossip section, and an update on movies screening in cinemas. Other extras inducted on a regular basis include "AT40 Breakout", a song predicted to crack the chart within the next few weeks (formerly known as the "Out of The Box" hit); "Request Line", a segment in which Ryan Seacrest will play a song requested by a listener; "Double Play", a former hit from the artist just played; "AT40 Sleaze" (inspired by the "Dees Sleaze" segment of the Rick Dees Weekly Top 40 radio show); and "AT40 Rewind", a hit song from the past decade or so.
Ryan Seacrest’s T40 airs every Sunday from 10:00am-2:00pm.
