North American Broadcasting Company announced today that WJKR (103.9 FM) has changed its format to country. The station will now be known as Country 103.9. The new format will feature popular country artists, like Luke Combs, Blake Shelton, Carrie Underwood, Luke Bryan, and Jason Aldean, to name a few. North American's President and CEO Matt Mnich said, “Country music is the most popular format in the United States because of the loyalty of the audience and the attractive demographics it delivers. Having programmed country for more than three decades in the past, we know the value of the listeners and the power of the music. Central Ohio deserves more than one choice for country music and we couldn’t be happier to be back in country radio.”
North American’s Operations Manager John Crenshaw added, “I moved to Columbus twenty-eight years ago to build a world-class country station and I am proud to have been part of that success. I am looking forward to doing it once more with Country 103.9”
Country 103.9 will announce its air staff lineup in the next couple of weeks. Additional programming information will be made available at Country1039fm.com.
