WACO Morning Show Broadcasting From Iraq
March 17, 2008 at 10:40 AM (PT)
CLEAR CHANNEL Country WACO/WACO, TX morning stars JIM CODY and ZACK OWENS are currently broadcasting their morning show from Camp Liberty, northeast of BAGHDAD INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT with the troops from Ft. HOOD, which is located in KILLEEN, TX.
JIM and ZACK are wrapping up a three-week stint in IRAQ. The mission came about when someone from FT. HOOD heard them talking about going to IRAQ on their morning show and to make a long story short, he called in, got the ball rolling and they were off to sunny BAGHDAD. Each morning they are interviewing soldiers, who are either from FT. HOOD or have TEXAS ties. The soldiers play games on air for pre-paid phone cards, send out dedications to loved ones back here at home, and relate first-hand to the WACO 100 listeners what life is like for them while serving our country.
WACO APD JENNIFER ALLEN, who has been holding down the fort, anchoring the morning show from back in TEXAS, told ALL ACCESS that the boys are headed out of IRAQ on SATURDAY, and are hoping to be back on the air by TUESDAY (3/25), next week. As we all know, flights out of BAGHDAD are always "on time," so it should be no problem.
