WOKY switches to classic country format on AM 920
WOKY (AM 920), which has been playing Top 40 hits from the 1960's and `70's, undergoes a format change at 6 a.m. Thursday. The station will be known as "AM 920 The Wolf," a classic country operation featuring artists like Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, George Jones, Dolly Parton, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson and 1980s artists like Anne Murray, Ronnie Milsap and the Oak Ridge Boys.
"It's an exciting time for country music fans in Milwaukee and all over southeastern Wisconsin," Clear Channel Milwaukee operations manager Kerry Wolfe said. "There is so much great country music that's been recorded through the years and now we'll be able to showcase it all."
Gregory Jon, the program director at WOKY, will work the morning shift, with Mark Richards on middays and Mitch Morgan in the afternoon.
Clear Channel Radio Milwaukee also owns and operates AM 920 The Wolf's sister station, FM 106.1 WMIL.
GOOD MORNING, I REALLY LIKE YOUR NEW FORMAT OF CLASSIC COUNTRY MUSIC. IT IS REALLY GREAT. AND IF YOU COULD HAVE MORE COMENTS ON THE ARTIST WOULD BE GREAT. HOW MANY WATTS IS YOUR STATION. I LIVE IN CASCADE, WI, AND THE WOLF DOESN'T COME THROUGH VERY WELL. WHAT TIME DO YOU STEP THE POWER UP? THANKS AGAIN, HOPPY
Thank you thank you guys, for putting on this GREAT FORMAT. My friends and family and myself are ALL loving it. Wow, it is so very refreshing to hear all the GREAT old country. There is no music better than it. Now radio is enjoyable again. Great Job to Mark Richards, Mitch Morgan and whomever else is involved. Thanks again, I have found a new home
good luck... I wish you all the best! Remember 1510?
All 10 listeners are sad. Get Sirius. No commercials and lots of variety. And it's only $12 month.
Wasn't the Wolf already around?! I swear I saw that logo before, but blue.
