The Austin-American Statesman reports that a new locally-owned radio station will be launching in Austin this Sunday.
The station is a kind of reboot of KOKE-FM, the renowned progressive country station that went off the air in 1987. It will play Texas-centric country music.
KOKE-FM will be found at both 99.3 FM and 98.5 FM. It will be the only commercial, locally-owned station in the city, competing with San Antonio-based media giant Clear Channel, who owns several radio stations in the city. The KOKE-FM management believes they can get an edge on their competition by using local radio personalities that understand what Austin wants.
The Austin carpet cleaning professionals of WOW Total Cleaning wish KOKE-FM the best of luck in its return to the airwaves.
