Townsquare Media Quincy-Hannibal General Manager Dave Greene announced today that 1530 AM (WLIQ) will now air Classic Country and be known as KICK-AM 1530.
"The number-one request we get on KICK-FM is to air more country hits from the past," said Greene. "Flipping 1530 to Classic Country gives us the opportunity to do just that, and we can now serve the entire country music audience between today's best hits on KICK-FM and 979kickfm.com, and the best country hits from the 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s on KICK-AM and on kickam1530.com."
"Whenever we take requests, we always hear from someone wanting to hear Willie (Nelson), Waylon (Jennings), Hank (Williams, Jr.), Dolly (Parton), or Alabama," said KICK Brand Manager and morning host Brian Myles. "Now, we can just let people know that if they want to hear the classics, they can flip over to 1530."
To promote the changeover, KICK-FM will be airing one classic country song per hour during the day to give listeners a feel for what they can hear on KICK AM.
