Happy 15th Birthday to Radio Disney! To celebrate this special occasion, I thought we’d take a look back at the history of Radio Disney with former VP of Programming, Robin Jones. Click here to get the scoop from Robin on the start of Radio Disney, what they learned from their research, when they realized its potential, Jesse McCartney‘s success story, and the role she played in getting The Cheetah Girls on the road. Plus, her thoughts on what she looked for in artists before adding them to her playlist.
Yesterday, the wax figure of Selena Gomez was unveiled at Madam Tussauds in New York. Yep, you can find her on display right next to Justin Bieber underneath the mistletoe!
