Cox Now Has Two Louisville Country Stations
July 24, 2008 at 8:59 AM (PT)
As ALL ACCESS told you last week (NET NEWS 7/18), COX RADIO launched a brand new Country outlet in LOUISVILLE, “WQNU New Country Q103.1.” The station, previously Oldies WRKA, was also simulcasting on 103.9 (formerly WPTI) until YESTERDAY (7/23).
PD MATT KILLION told ALL ACCESS that they have now split the frequencies, as 103.9 launched yesterday at 5p (CT) as “COUNTRY LEGENDS,” taking the WRKA calls from the former oldies station. KILLION reported that Oldies morning personality GARY CLARK will handle mornings on 103.9, with no future staffing planned at this point. As for the mix, KILLION said: “It’s definitely pre-GARTH '80s-based, going all the way back to PATSY CLINE.” Some of the core artists will be HANK Jr., DOLLY PARTON and WILLIE NELSON.
As for NEW COUNTRY WQNU-103.1, right now it’s wall-to-wall music, but KILLION is looking to staff it from top to bottom. Send your packages to email@example.com.
