The Dude is here.
Hometown Wilmington Media launched its newest radio station, The Dude (93.7 and 106.3 FM), at noon today.
The Dude is a country radio station featuring the hottest stars, the latest songs and, most importantly, a listener-driven format, according to Hometown Wilmington Media General Manager Beau Gunn.
“In keeping with the tradition of being your hometown connection, we wanted a country radio station that played the songs listeners wanted to hear,” Gunn said. “We want your input. We want to play the country music Wilmington wants to hear; not music that was selected in Atlanta or New York.”
Listeners can expect to hear songs from the latest country stars, including songs you won’t hear anywhere else.
Artists featured on The Dude include Carrie Underwood, Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert, Jason Aldean, Taylor Swift, Florida Georgia Line, Luke Bryan, Keith Urban, Kelli Pickler and more of country music’s hottest stars. The Dude will play their chart-toppers, as well as lesser-known songs deeper in their albums.
“We knew Wilmington wanted a country station. And we know people want to be involved in selecting the songs you want to hear. We’ve created a listener advisory board so that The Dude plays songs the Port City wants to hear,” Gunn said.
With the launch of The Dude, Port City Radio—Wilmington’s only all-news radio station—will permanently broadcast on 95.9 FM and 1180 AM.
“We’re committed to continuing to offer Wilmington its only all-news radio station where you can find local news and sports from Port City Daily, financial and market updates from the Wall Street Journal, national news from CBS News, and, of course, traffic and weather every 10 minutes,” Gunn said.
