The shows are synonymous with what is hot in pop music for the year, featuring superstar, chart-topping performers and becoming one of the most sought after tickets,” said Tom Poleman, President of National Programming Platforms, Clear Channel Media and Entertainment. “Jingle Ball is a holiday tradition that we love to share with our stations’ loyal fans nationwide and this year we are thrilled to expand the Jingle Ball brand to the Washington, D.C. and Atlanta markets for their first-ever concerts.”
