"This is the most aggressive team I have ever met," CHAMPAIGN PARTNERS Manager JOHN MAGUIRE said. "DWAYNE HUBBARD has put together a plan with a star programmer who will dominate the CHAMPAIGN-URBANA radio market."
"I’m very excited to be a part of history!," said HUBBARD, who serves as CEO of PENDLETON. "We are the first African-American owners & operators of an FM in CENTRAL ILLINOIS. CHAMPAIGN-URBANA now has its own Hits & Hip-Hop station. We will super-serve the community and bring the area’s music entertainment scene up a notch, something our competitors have failed to do in this vibrant market."
