A profile of former MEMPHiS Mayor WILLIE HERENTON in the OCTOBER issue of MEMPHIS MAGAZINE says that HERENTON may be hosting a noontime show "on a newly created News-oriented station in the FLINN (BROADCASTING CO.) stable."
The article says that HERENTON "had already had conversations with both Dr. GEORGE FLINN, the radiologist and former SHELBY COUNTY commissioner who founded the now far-flung FLINN BROADCASTING NETWORK, and son SHEA FLINN, the lawyer and city councilman who is the architect of this latest expansion of the FLINN family enterprises." HERENTON, reporter JACKSON BAKER writes, decided in the course of his conversation with BAKER that he would do the show.
FLINN's MEMPHIS cluster includes Top 40 WHBQ-F-WIVG (THE Q), Top 40/Rhythmic KXHT (HOT 107.1), Sports WHBQ-A, RADIO DISNEY affiliate WOWW-A, Adult Standards WMPS-A, Spanish WGSF-A (RADIO AMBIENTE), and Triple A WPGF-LP (87.7 FM THE PIG, broadcasting on the audio channel of an analog LPTV station).
