94.3 WNFZ Changes Format and Re-Introduces a Unique Kind of Radio to Knoxville
Knoxville, TN – JACK-FM has returned to the Knoxville radio market, re-introducing a new kind of radio. The change-over is effective at 5:00pm on Thursday, March 21st.
“We’re excited to introduce a totally different radio station to East Tennessee,” said Randy Chambers, JACK-FM’s Brand Manager. “The radio market and advertiser needs continue to evolve and we’re evolving with those needs. JACK-FM is a music-driven, innovative and energetic format that is designed for an adult audience and built around the promises of variety, low repetition, fewer commercials and less clutter.”
94.3 JACK-FM will operate without disc jockeys, but will deliver plenty of personality, fun, exciting promotions and events. 94.3 JACKFM is a unique brand of radio that is locally programmed with music that is hand-picked to appeal to the tastes of East Tennessee radio listeners. JACK-FM merges thousands of hit songs from the 70s, 80s, 90s, 00’s and today with a bit of attitude with a fun format that blends different styles of music in unexpected ways. JACKFM’s playlist will be four times larger than the typical East Tennessee station. This innovative format was first introduced in Canada in 2002 and since then has taken off in many U.S. markets, including Nashville’s highly successful WCJK 96.3 JACK-FM which is owned and operated by Midwest Communications, Inc. “94.3 JACK-FM is a response to the ‘I want it all world’ in which people can enjoy Aerosmith, Prince, Green Day, Maroon 5 and the Rolling Stones all on the same station,” said Chambers.
“Hey, we love all that music too so we decided we’re just going to play it all!” 94.3 JACK-FM is currently operating under an LMA, awaiting FCC approval, upon which Midwest Communications will take ownership. 94.3 JACK-FM will be privately owned by Duke Wright’s Midwest Communications, which also owns and operates Knoxville radio stations B97.5, 103.5 WIMZ and 95.7 DUKE FM. # # # For additional information:
