Mid-West Family Broadcasting in Springfield will launch “U.S. Country 92-7“, a brand new station in the Springfield and Central Illinois radio market, on Tuesday.
The station features “Brian and Kellie” from 6AM-10AM, which marks a return to Central Illinois for Brian Pierce and Kellie Michaels. The husband and wife duo was most recently heard on 101.3 KFDI in Wichita, KS, but are best known in central Illinois for their time on then “Lite Rock 99”, now 98-7 WNNS.
The former “92-7 QLZ” has completed its full move to the 97.7 frequency, formerly occupied by “Alice @ 97-7“. In the process of the signal change, WQLZ also dropped the syndicated “Free Beer and Hot Wings” morning show and launched the “3rd String Morning Show with Styles and Kaytie”.
The adult alternative format of the former “Alice at 97-7” may now be heard exclusively at Alice.FM and the station’s free mobile apps for iPhone and Android.
“U.S. Country” will also be on Facebook and on Twitter.
