"Jingle Ball has become a holiday entertainment staple across the country. We’re thrilled to expand the brand -- from the launch of Z100’s first Jingle Ball at Madison Square Garden in 1996, to now hosting a dozen across the country including the first ever 103.5 KISS FM Jingle Ball in Chicago," said Tom Poleman, President of National Programming Platforms, Clear Channel Media and Entertainment. "Our Jingle Ball events reflect what's really special about our radio stations and the iHeartRadio digital platform – expert curation of the biggest superstars and the most promising emerging artists in music."

"For the first time ever, this year The Jingle Ball will be a nationally televised broadcast music event as the CW Network will air a special two hour presentation on Dec. 18 at 8 p.m. ET," said John Sykes, President of Entertainment Enterprises at Clear Channel. "Now millions of music fans in all 50 states will have the opportunity to experience one of the most highly anticipated annual holiday music events on television."

True to radio’s commitment to serve the communities in which its listeners live and work, cities involved in the iHeartRadio Jingle Ball Tour will give back to the community to celebrate the holiday season, and to help others. This year, Clear Channel Media and Entertainment is proud to partner with The Ryan Seacrest Foundation. $1.00 of each ticket sold will be donated to the non-profit organization dedicated to inspiring today’s youth through entertainment and education focused initiatives, for eleven cities of the iHeartRadio Jingle Ball 2013 Tour, in Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Seattle, Chicago, Atlanta, Minneapolis, New York, Boston, Washington D.C., Tampa and Miami. In addition, 106.1 KISS FM’s Jingle Ball in Dallas will work with the Kidd's Kids program of the Kraddick Foundation. Kidd Kraddick, 106.1 KISS FM’s morning show personality, founded the Kraddick Foundation, a 501©3 non-profit organization, which is dedicated to making a difference in the lives of children with special medical needs in the Dallas community. This year’s 106.1 KISS FM Jingle Ball will donate $1.00 of each ticket sold to the Kraddick Foundation to honor and continue his legacy after his sudden passing this past July.
