Back when Twilight was known only as a best-selling book – Summit Entertainment was looking for ways to generate excitement for their new movie adaptation.

KMS put Twilight in a position to own the appropriately timed “twilight” hour (5:00 pm – 6:00 pm) on radio stations across the country.  The custom hour of programming included songs from the soundtrack, various two-minute interview segments with the Twilight cast, and giveaways enticing and entertaining listeners for the movies upcoming release.
