August 2, 2016 at 12:06 PM (PT)
BIG RADIO Oldies WGEZ-A/BELOIT, WI will be making the flip to Country beginning TOMORROW (8/3) as IRON COUNTRY 1490AM with an emphasis on Country hits from the 70s, 80s, 90s, and early 2000s. Additionally, the station is set to simulcast on BELOIT's first FM signal via translator; IRON COUNTRY 101.9FM will be broadcast via W270CW/BELOIT, WI.
BIG RADIO co-owner BEN THOMPSON will handle programming duties for the new station. Local radio vet BIG RED is slated to handle mornings while SHARY GIBSON has been tapped for middays. KEITH CECH will serve as afternoon drive host, and "HURRICANE JERRY" HUFFAR will be the evening personality. Overnights will be handled by KATIE TURNER. "Other local stations claim to offer 'Country,' but at IRON COUNTRY, we've created a station for music lovers who prefer to take their Country straight up -- with no Pop chaser," said THOMPSON. "This station is for them, putting the greatest hits in Country music front and center." Reach out to THOMPSON here, and stream IRON COUNTRY beginning TOMORROW (8/3) here.
