Known for his quick wit and approachable demeanor, Ty Bentli is a television and radio host. Each morning, Ty leads Westwood One’s internationally syndicated country morning show - engaging, high-energy and LIVE from inside the world of your favorite country artists! The Ty Bentli Show brings Nashville to YOU - injecting humor and unpredictability into genuine and in-the-moment conversations with listeners and country music’s biggest stars!
Bentli has taken us backstage and down the red carpet at the biggest events in music – red carpet interviews with his on-screen partner, Kerri Kasem, including the GRAMMYS, the American Music Awards, the Billboard Music Awards, the Hollywood Film Awards, People Magazine Awards, and other marquee events. Ty and Kacey Musgraves took us ON-stage during the ACM Awards as they presented Thomas Rhett with Male Vocalist of the Year. His friendship and rapport with celebrities and industry professionals has created memorable moments on-air, online, and on-site.
Ty has decades of major market success, including market-defining ratings at Chicago’s KissFM, duplicated as he rose to #1 in Los Angeles at 104.3 MyFM, and expanded his reach across the country by delivering localized, successful, multi-format shows on stations like 94.9 The Bull, Atlanta; 102.5 KNIX, Phoenix; Big 98, Nashville; KJ97, San Antonio; this all led to Ty taking the helm as morning host at New York’s 92.3/NYC – quickly driving the morning show from oblivion into one of the top competitors in market #1. During his time based in NYC, Ty and his cast of “Ty Loves New York” was featured on Fox TV’s Dish Nation. Ty has also appeared on specialty programming for NASH TV, MTV and VH1.
Ty proudly aligns himself with support of first responders (his dad was a police officer) and military causes – active duty, veterans, and their families. Bentli greatly appreciates the opportunities to be involved in inspiring organizations. Serving as host and presenter for the annual Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) Telethon (formerly the Jerry Lewis Telethon) led him to meeting his wife, Corri. He recently spent a summer volunteering as a mentor at South Central Youth Center “A Place Called Home,” and annually encourages listeners to honor our deployed service-members during the show’s 100,000 Thank Yous campaign! Ty and his son Radley welcomed their family’s latest addition with a massive diaper drive – “The Rally Around Radley” campaign rasied over 200,000 diaper donations & highlighted a significant need that many people are just becoming aware of.
In addition to his efforts to raise money for St Jude’s and Children’s Hospitals, Ty is also a proponent for bettering the condition of the music industry. He champions songwriters and has created opportunities for new artists who are sometimes being kept below the radar of music fans! This includes his Undeniable Series of 2019 - amazing talents like Caylee Hammack, Kassi Ashton, Abby Anderson, Maddie & Tae, King Calaway, Ashley McBryde, Mitchell Tenpenny and more…
Ty lives in Nashville with Corri, and their sons ‘Rad & Bash.’
