Two weeks ago (NET NEWS 1/28), ALL ACCESS reported KCMP (THE CURRENT)/MINNEAPOLIS-ST. PAUL Triple A midday host BARB ABNEY had exited the station due to a “programming decision.”
Now, THE PIONEER PRESS reports ABNEY is crossing the street to the newly-launched NORTHERN LIGHTS Alternative KTWN (GO 96.3)/MINNEAPOLIS-ST. PAUL.
"I'm super-excited to be at something from the beginning," ABNEY said. "It's brand new, the vision is amazing. I've never seen radio done this way before."
"ABNEY will start MONDAY in the 8a-noon position," notes the paper. "Local radio veteran BRIAN 'BT' TURNER will host a specialty show from noon-1p, followed by JASON NAGEL from 1-4p. Local musician LINNEA MOHN and THE CURRENT's original MD THORN SKROCH take the 4-8p shift."
GO 96.3 Brand Manager CHRIS RAHN added, "This is a powerful lineup of connected, local music hosts. The energy, passion and love of modern music they’ll bring to our listeners each day are things I’m very excited about and we’re not done. We still have more to add!"
