The station will be consulted by KROEGER MEDIA. WAKT middayer MELISSA MILLER has been named PD, following former PD/morning personality ROB STARK's exit (NET NEWS (9/15).
LANE said: "Our station is a bit different, a little risky and outside of the box. It's gonna' be fun, the way radio should be. MELISSA came to us from [CITADEL Country WKHX/ATLANTA] KIX 101.5, she writes for CMT, loves the Country lifestyle and she's perfect for the station."
Afternoon driver BRANDON ANDREWS will segue to middays, and MILLER will now do afternoons. The night shift will be wall-to-wall music. The station is already airing PREMIERE RADIO's syndicated "BIG D & BUBBA SHOW" for morning drive, and they will also broadcast CMT's "COUNTRY COUNTDOWN USA" with LON HELTON.
