With the closing of the sale by HOWARD FLOYD JOHNSON's VENTURE BROADCASTING LLC of FM translator W240CA/REUBENSVILLE, TN to his father TED JOHNSON's SOUTHERN WABASH COMMUNICATIONS OF MIDDLE TENNESSEE, INC. for $1 (NET NEWS 5/2), the buyer has officially announced that the previously reported simulcast of Sports WNSR-A/NASHVILLE will begin this SUMMER on 95.9 FM, with construction expected to be completed in JULY.
“Before the PREDATORS and TITANS, WNSR brought sports programming to the airwaves in Nashville”, said GSM and afternoon host THOM ABRAHAM. “This station has stayed true to the format for over 15 years and we are now excited to make it available on the FM band. The new logo puts the emphasis on WNSR, which has stood for NASHVILLE’s Sports Radio since 1997, something we are very proud of, and something I have come to appreciate since coming here in 4 years ago.”
GM and co-founder TED JOHNSON added, “We recently moved into new offices and built a new studio and this move shows the commitment of our ownership group to provide the best product we can for our listeners and advertisers. Along with our digital platforms, WNSR is now available just about every way imaginable. We believe in the AM band, yet recognize the benefits of FM as well.”
