Earthworks Entertainment's Hit Parade Radio Hires ABC Radio Network's Liz Doyle

ADDISON, TX--(Marketwire - December 7, 2009) - Earthworks Entertainment, Inc.'s (PINKSHEETS: EWKS) Hit Parade Radio (HPR) today announced that Liz Doyle has been hired as its Vice President of Operations. Doyle joins Hit Parade Radio from the ABC Radio Networks in Dallas where she spent the last 15 years.

Earthworks CEO Steven Humphries made the announcement today and said, "We are very excited that Liz has joined HPR as our VP of Operations here in Texas. Her vast experience in developing and managing radio networks will be a huge plus for the company as we move forward with the launch of our 24/7 oldies radio network."

HPR President John Rook said, "We've been looking for the right person to head up our Texas operations and Liz is the perfect person for the job. We are excited to have someone of her experience level to manage our network operations."

Doyle departed ABC last month when the company announced that it would be terminating the "Timeless" format on over 80 radio stations throughout the USA in February 2010. The Hit Parade format is similar in demographic appeal to the "Timeless" format and hopes to attract those affiliates with their programming.

Among the on air talent to be featured on Hit Parade Radio is Hall Of Fame inductee Larry Lujack and multi award winning radio personality and game show host Wink Martindale.

Hit Parade Radio is the creation of veteran programmer John Rook. Rook has been a top industry programmer for over 30 years having programmed stations such as WLS-Chicago, WCFL-Chicago, KFI-Los Angeles, KABC-Los Angeles and many others.
