CHARLIE TUNA is returning to his hometown of KEARNEY, NE ...at least on the air. His '70s show will be airing SUNDAY mornings on PLATTE RIVER RADIO Classic Hits 98.9 KKPR.
"We are so glad we have CHARLIE TUNA on Classic Hits for what he does is contagious," GM CRAIG ECKERT said. "That, combined with his world class talent and tremendous attention to detail, give us the sense of a real desire to be a part of our staff and our station ... may the '70s last forever!"
"It’s great to be back on the air in the town that’s still home to me!" TUNA exclaimed. "The people of KEARNEY gave a 16-year-old kid who wanted to make radio his life’s work, the encouragement and support that I just might be able to do something in this business, and I'll never forget them for that!"
