JOURNAL BROADCAST GROUP Rock KICT (T95)/WICHITA, KS changed its name last FRIDAY in support of the historic run by WICHITA STATE UNIVERSITY in the college basketball tournament. With permission from the university, T95 "The Rock Station" became WU95 "The Shock Station" at noon last FRIDAY MARCH 29th.
The "WU" is a nod to the schools mascot and to a popular chant at the University. KICT PD JOHNNY MAZE said, "Our listeners love WICHITA STATE Athletics and they're playing along."
WICHITA STATE beat OHIO STATE State over the weekend to reach the Final Four in ATLANTA and will play LOUISVILLE this SATURDAY APRIL 6th. The name will stay as long as WSU continues to play basketball.
