WATO-A/OAK RIDGE, TN, off the air since a tower fell in MARCH 2008, is returning to the air under new ownership, reports the KNOXVILLE NEWS-SENTINEL.
Retired accountant ANN C. WALDEN says that she will bring the station back with testing on AUGUST 14th and plans to begin regular broadcasting on AUGUST 26th with a conservative-leaning Talk format as "THE ATOMIC TALKER." The lineup will feature a local show with attorney PHIL HARBER and WALDEN herself hosting a three-hour morning show.
WALDEN's SHEEPDOG BROADCASTING CORPORATION acquired the station from HORNE RADIO, LLC earlier this year.
