Chattanooga's Mountain Moves To Hits 96

BAHAKEL Top 40 WDOD (96.5 THE MOUNTAIN)/CHATTANOOGA has adopted a new identity as of 12 noon ET today (2/3), morphing into HITS 96.
PD DANNY HOWARD said, "Our new name reflects what we do; Play ALL of today's hit music.” GM BERNIE BARKER added, “HITS 96 is not about a lot of change. It’s about a ‘new download’ with some ‘tweaks.’ The new logo is more about today. We feel the new look and the ‘tweaked sound’ of HITS 96 clearly reflects the hit music radio station that it is.”
The station's air talent line-up remains the same, with KIDD KRADDICK in the morning, JASON WALKER in middays, BRAD STEINER in afternoon drive, and "Nooga Nights" with MD SEAN STEWART.
WDOD flipped from Triple A to Top 40 in MARCH 2008, but retained the "MOUNTAIN" moniker until now.
