After a WEEKEND of stunting with CHRISTMAS music (NET NEWS 7/1), BERKSHIRE BROADCASTING/DANBURY, CT has officially flipped its translator W287AN and its originating station WDAQ-HD3 (107.3) to Country, branding it "1073 THE BULL." The new station is programming with recent Country hits and positioning as "CONNECTICUT's New Country." Among the core artists for the station are KEITH URBAN, CARRIE UNDERWOOD, BLAKE SHELTON, JASON ALDEAN, LUKE BRYAN, FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE, SAM HUNT, and more. "THE BULL" is being introduced with a "Commercial Free SUMMER."
The cluster's AC WDAQ (98Q) afternoon host and Alternative WDAQ-HD2 PD DAN HOPKINS (NET NEWS 5/25) adds programming duties for "THE BULL." "There are Country stations receivable in our market," said HOPKINS. "But they largely target NEW YORK STATE or upstate CONNECTICUT and also include much older Country titles in their playlists. '1073 THE BULL' will focus exclusively on both the Greater DANBURY area and the younger end of the Country listening audience."
