Curtis Media Group Launches Bluegrass On WFNL
September 29, 2014 at 7:32 AM (PT)
CURTIS MEDIA GROUP Comedy WFNL/RALEIGH flipped to Bluegrass at 12p (ET) on FRIDAY (9/26). Many Bluegrass pioneers and legends hail from the NORTH CAROLINA area, and the format continues to grow there.
The WFNL launch coincides with the INTERNATIONAL BLUEGRASS MUSIC ASSOCIATION WORLD OF BLUEGRASS FESTIVAL, headquartered in RALEIGH, which begins TODAY (9/29).
"Our commitment to Bluegrass started when WPTF [680 AM/RALEIGH] hired FLATT & SCRUGGS in 1952," explained CURTIS MEDIA GROUP EVP TRIP SAVERY. "We are very proud to bring a part of our heritage back to the airwaves."
