KROEGER MEDIA INC. has selected ENVISION RADIO NETWORKS as its national syndicator for the new HANK FM, a 24/7 variety-based Country radio format that “provides unique personality-driven radio for your market that is in touch with the current listening trends and methodology employed by your audience.” HANK FM is from the creator of the Variety Hits Format and BOB FM.
“We are now in the age of the celestial jukebox,” said HOWARD KROEGER, the creator and voice of HANK FM. “The Internet, peer to peer file sharing, iTunes, TV, video games and the box office have all contributed towards remapping listeners music tastes as we start this second decade of the 21st Century. Wide variety based formats are now a successful niche. The success of the BOB/JACK format is hard evidence of that.”
Similar to its Adult Hits cousins, BOB FM and JACK FM, HANK FM will feature a unique mix of over 1000 tested titles spanning from the 80’s, 90’s, 00’s and today. HANK will play everything Country, including with acts from LADY ANTEBELLUM, ZAC BROWN BAND, CARRIE UNDERWOOD), BRAD PAISLEY, REBA and GARTH BROOKS to RANDY TRAVIS, THE JUDDS AND MERLE HAGGARD.
HANK FM offers different levels of programming packages available for both cash and barter. In addition to the rights to use the HANK name and logo, affiliates have access to a music library, on-air copy and station imaging including voice, sweeper, promos and jingles. HANK also offers off-air support with promotional ideas, daily music logs and programming guidance.
