MAPLETON COMMUNICATIONS Country KNNN-LP/REDDING, CA, a hybrid radio station/over-the-air TV Channel 6, has flipped from Country "HANK FM" to Alternative under HELLA MEADA GROUP LLC of REDDING, which is taking over operations of the station effective JANUARY 1st. The New and Classic Alternative format will feature unsigned and local artists.
"We will also be placing a heavy emphasis on community involvement including fundraising campaigns, volunteer work and community event hosting while offering up some fun on-air programming that enriches the lives of our community," HMG's Pres./CEO JESSE ANGELO said.
Two other streaming stations will debut in JANUARY as well. "Rocking Grandpa" will play the Oldies from the '50s, '60s and '70s, while "The Bling" will air a Hip-Hop & R&B format.
The stations' physical location is also changing. KNNN will move from its current location on Alta Mesa Drive to its new broadcast facilities on North Market Street within the KIXE Television studio building.
"One of the things that make us different to other stations", ANGELO continued, "Is that we will be keeping the commercials to a minimum while maintaining a more effective platform for our on-air partners but it also creates a more friendly listening experience. We also will be putting together some exciting musical events and are always eager to hear from independent musicians and artists."
