KKOJ Introduces Minor Format Change To Play Country Legends

Mon 1-10-2022

Some minor changes are coming for KKOJ, including slightly different times for weather and a format change to older country music. Programs and Operations Director Jason Jacobs talked about the format change and what it will mean for many listeners...

“The opportunity became available for us to make a flip full time to classic country and we decided to do that. It'll also kind of separate the music a little bit from what we're playing on Xtreme Country, which is you know, you're hearing some songs from 2000's and 2010's yet on Xtreme Country but that's obviously where more of the current stuff is playing.”

He also mentioned that weather times will change...

“I'm happy to report that none of the news or the sports or the markets none of that's gonna change. The only change you'll notice on that front is your weather updates in an hour when we don't have newscasts will air at the top and bottom of the hour now instead of around quarter after and quarter till.”

Jacobs also brought up the music switch, which will add many older artists to the mix of what is on the air including many from the 80s and some from the 90s. He mentioned a few by name like Willie Nelson, The Statler Brothers, Suzy Bogguss.

Jacobs hopes the listeners enjoy the small format switch as we return to the country legends.
