PLATTE RIVER RADIO Oldies KKPR/KEARNEY, NE added syndicated HALL OF FAME radio personality CHARLIE TUNA to mornings. TUNA’s weekly ‘70s show has been heard all day SUNDAYS on KKPR for the past few years.
PLATTE RIVER RADIO EVP/GM CRAIG ECKERT added CHARLIE's daily show in the TRI-CITY cluster market, where CHARLIE began his morning drive radio career while a sophomore at KEARNEY HIGH SCHOOL. TUNA left for LOS ANGELES less than three years later to join KHJ in the ‘60s.
"Home is where the heart is," CHARLIE said. "There's nothing more important than your career coming full circle back to where you fell in love with your present career, and this is a great opportunity with our growing list of daily affiliates to show NEBRASKA what became of the kid they encouraged starting out.”
CHARLIE TUNA's daily show, which has also been picked up by WOWY/STATE COLLEGE, PA, is available through Black Card Radio for Classic Hits, AC, Oldies, Pop and Country stations targeted at adults 25-54. The CHARLIE TUNA HOLLYWOOD MINUTE along with CHARLIE’s weekend content-only show, and a separate weekend ‘70s Show with music and artist interviews is available.
