SHOCKER! ALL ACCESS has confirmed that CLEAR CHANNEL has flipped Top 40 WKXJ (98.1 KISS FM)/CHATTANOOGA to Country Gold as of 10a (CT), with the programming from sister Classic Country WNGA (97.3 THE LEGEND), which was recently sold. The new station kicked off with MERLE HAGGARD's "That's The Way Love Goes" from 1983, followed by MOE BANDY's "Bandy The Rodeo Clown" (1973).
In the wake of the format change, WKXJ PD/middayer RIGGS is out and reachable at (423) 593-8776 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Syndicated morning duo ACE & TJ lose the affliation in the process. Also out are MD/night green monster dude SHREK, who is lurking in the bushes at (845) 505-2432 or email@example.com; APD/afternooner MIKE MICHONSKI -- (423) 314-0017 -- also is on the hunt for a new home.
