We've Got A New Sister Station

Middletown FM Returns to its Country Roots

Grant Country Broadcasters, owners of WNKR-FM 106.7 in Dry Ridge, KY, has launched its second Classic Country radio station in the tri-state.

WNKN-FM 105.9, signed on this morning with local radio legend Larry B. Larry B has been the morning man on WNKR 106.7 for 19 years. He previously worked at the 105.9 frequency when it was playing country music as “The Rebel”.
The new signal reaches from north of Dayton, OH to south of Florence, KY.

Both stations play Classic Country music from the 60s to 2007, primarily focused on the 1990s. “Our listeners are people who love pure country music. “Today’s country music has evolved to include elements of rap and harder rock music”, says VP of Programming Peter Z. “Our goal is to satisfy the pure country listener with the likes of Alan Jackson, George Strait, The Judds, Reba, Clint Black and more.”

Jeff Ziesmann, owner and CEO of the stations says he’s long believed the only thing he could do to improve on WNKR is to put it on a bigger signal where more people could enjoy it. “Between 105.9 and 106.7, we’ve increased our reach substantially”.

In addition to Larry B in mornings, Gina Matthews will handle the workday hours and Peter Z will cover the afternoon drive home. Michael Monks is News Director. Weekends include Jay Anthony, Tomcat Michaels and Country Radio Broadcasters Hall of Fame Member Tim Closson.

Middletown FM Returns to its Country Roots

Grant Country Broadcasters, owners of WNKR-FM 106.7 in Dry Ridge, KY, has launched its second Classic Country radio station in the tri-state.

WNKN-FM 105.9, licensed to Middletown, OH signed on this morning with local radio legend Larry B. Larry B has been the morning man on WNKR 106.7 for 19 years. He previously worked at the 105.9 frequency when it was playing country music as “The Rebel”.

The new signal reaches from north of Dayton, OH to south of Florence, KY.

Both stations play Classic Country music from the 60s to 2007, primarily focused on the 1990s. “Our listeners are people who love pure country music. “Today’s country music has evolved to include elements of rap and harder rock music”, says VP of Programming Peter Z. “There’s an audience for that and there are several radio stations serving that up. Our goal is to satisfy the pure country listener with the likes of Alan Jackson, George Strait, The Judds, Reba, Clint Black and more.”

Jeff Ziesmann, owner and CEO of the stations says he’s long believed the only thing he could do to improve on WNKR is to put it on a bigger signal where more people could enjoy it. “Between 105.9 and 106.7, we’ve increased our reach substantially”.

In addition to Larry B in mornings, Gina Matthews will handle the workday hours and Peter Z will cover the afternoon drive home. Michael Monks, publisher and editor of The River City News is News Director. Joining current staffers Jay Anthony and Tomcat Michaels on weekends will be Tim Closson, a member of the Country Music Broadcasters Hall of Fame, who has years of success programming country radio in Cincinnati.
