WHOK/Columbus, OH To End Country Programming
November 13, 2015 at 7:36 AM (PT)
As ALL ACCESS reported YESTERDAY (NET NEWS 11/12), WILKS Classic Country WHOK (K107.1)/COLUMBUS, OH will flip to Gospel, effective MONDAY, NOVEMBER 16th. The change results from WILKS’ sale (NET NEWS 11/13) of WHOK and Sports sister WZOH to RADIO ONE, which has already flipped the latter to a “MAGIC” branded Urban AC. Though the sale has not been completed, RADIO ONE began operating both properties via a local marketing agreement at Midnight on THURSDAY (11/12).
Additionally, JOEL RAAB ASSOCIATES President, and Country Radio Hall of Fame member JOEL RAAB helpfully points out to ALL ACCESS, the flip of WHOK marks an end of an era. While possibly not consecutive years, The 'HOK calls have been associated with Country music for decades, dating back to 1948.
