ADDISON, TX--(Marketwire - February 5, 2010) - Earthworks Entertainment, Inc.'s (PINKSHEETS: EWKS) Hit Parade Radio (HPR) today announced that the Company has signed an exclusive representation agreement with Mike Tyler's Broadcast Affiliate Syndicators of Dallas.

HPR President John Rook said, "We're extremely happy that we have signed Mike and his team to lead the affiliation and launch of HPR scheduled to debut on Clear Channel Satellite next week. Mike's vast experience and 30 years of success in radio networks will greatly ensure the success of HPR."

Liz Doyle, HPR VP of Operations, added, "Mike is a legend in radio network operations. We are confident that Mike will replicate his successes with HPR. We are all looking forward to working with him."

Mike Tyler commented, "It is an honor to be working with such a visionary as John Rook, founder of Hit Parade Radio Network. John is a legend in radio and has designed Hit Parade to put the fun back in radio. John is building a format that will increase audience and revenue in all size markets."

Mike Tyler has been involved with broadcasting for more than 30 years, and assisted in building two major radio networks. He was elected to the National Association of Broadcaster Board of Directors representing the Network Radio Industry.

Mike and his father John Tyler built Satellite Music Network at which time he became the top salesperson at SMN, signing more radio stations to programming contracts than anyone in the entire industry. While at SMN Mike developed the format called "The Touch" and helped change the image that satellite-delivered programming would only work in small markets.

Mike helped build Jones Radio Networks by recruiting and training a sales staff that signed more than 1000 radio stations to programming agreements. Mike completed joint ventures between "Z-Spanish Network," "The Team" and JRN and developed "CD Country."

Mike was sales administrator/marketing consultant for Digital Courier International, a company that delivered radio commercials over ISDN lines. Mike and his sales staff signed 5000 radio stations to this service in 18 months.
