Midwest Communications Adds Another Nashville Signal. The acquisition of Joule Broadcasting's CHR WNFN, Nashville "i106 Hits" – when completed – will give Midwest Communications three signals in the Nashville market. The company acquired adult contemporary WJXA "Mix 92.9" and adult hits WCJK "96.3 Jack FM" from South Central in 2014. Midwest Communications president Duke Wright states, "We love Nashville and are delighted to be able to add WNFN to our growing Midwest family. We have enjoyed measurable success since entering the Nashville market and have no doubt that WNFN will be a terrific complement to our existing radio brands."
New Triple A Launches in Tri-Cities, Washington Market. The station in the Eastern Washington market known as the Tri-Cities (Richland, Kennewick, and Pasco) is KQFO and the new triple A format is branded as "100.1 The Oasis." Program director Chris Gilbreth says in a statement, "We've had a chance to run 'The Oasis' in an incubator setting for the last 18 months on an HD-fed translator in the Walla Walla area, 50 miles away. Alexandra Communications president Tom Hodgins was kind enough to give the format a shot on a newly acquired, full-market station in the Tri-Cities. I'm excited to unleash all this great music that's been missing from Tri-Cities radio."
