KFTI-A Goes From Classic Country To True Oldies
May 28, 2010 at 8:48 AM (PT)
JOURNAL BROADCAST GROUP/WICHITA, KS has flipped KFTI-A from Classic Country to TRUE OLDIES 1070 AM as of 12:30p (CT) TODAY (5/27). The station also changed its call letters to KLIO-A. The flip was based on the large number of Oldies music fans in the WICHITA area.
VP/GM ERIC McCART said: “There is a gap in the WICHITA market that needs to be filled. TRUE OLDIES 1070 AM will play Oldies music from the ’60s, ’70s, and even early ’80s. A lot of the songs listeners will hear on TRUE OLDIES 1070 AM originally aired on AM radio, and we want to bring those favorites back for them where it all started.”
The station will be airing regular features like the TRUE OLDIES DAILY COUNTDOWN, the ROCK & ROLL CALENDAR, ONE-HIT WONDERS, FORGOTTEN 45s and CRUISING CLASSICS.
OM BEVERLEE BRANNIGAN will be overseeing programming for KLIO-A. "GENTLE" BEN INGRAM, who did afternoons for KFTI-A, has exited due to his position being eliminated. BEN can be reached at (316) 807-6154 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The station will now be running the SCOTT SHANNON TRUE OLDIES format programming, but they are needing one full-time local on-air talent (daypart to be determined).
Send airchecks and resumes to BEVERLEE at email@example.com or to her attention at KLIO, 4200 N. Old Lawrence Rd., WICHITA, KS 67219.
