WUSN Is Now 'Chicago's Hottest Country'

CBS RADIO Country WUSN/CHICAGO has begun what appears to be a rebranding initiative, starting with a new slogan unveiled TODAY (8/8): “CHICAGO’s Hottest Country.” ALL ACCESS was not able to contact PD JEFF KAPUGI directly for details, but CHICAGO media correspondent ROBERT FEDER’s blog included portions of a statement from KAPUGI that read, “It’s important that we reflect today’s Country listener in everything we do. The artists, music and concerts are hot, and now so is ‘US 99 CHICAGO's Hottest Country.” Stream it here.
Also quoted, TODD CAVANAH, VP/Programming for CBS RADIO CHICAGO, calling the rebranding a first step towards, “some exciting new changes coming to US 99.” Those changes will surely include a new morning and evening show, following last week’s departure of longtime morning teamers RAY STEVENS and LISA DENT and night jock JOEL LISINSKI (NET NEWS 8/3).
