COOKEVILLE – Stonecom let the dogs out Thursday with the arrival of 93.3 The Dawg, Cookeville’s Classic Hip Hop Station.
The station features the classic hip hop of the 80s and 90s with songs from the early 2000s as well.
“We are excited to bring a new musical genre to the Upper Cumberland,” Operations Manager Marcia Lee said. “We’ve worked really hard to develop this one-of-a-kind station for those who grew up with this music.”
The station broadcasts at 93.3 FM as well as on 106.9 WKXD-HD2. Stonecom invested more than $100,000 in upgrading its transmission facility for 106.9 Kicks Country providing better sound and reliability as well as the new broadcast options.
“It’s similar to HD Television where Nashville stations, for example, will have channel 5, channel 5.2, etc.,” Lee said. “It gives us the chance to serve the community with another listening experience.”
For those with HD radios in their car, you can simply search at 106-9 and look for the station.
The station features artists ranging from Bobby Brown to Jay-Z, Outkast to Notorious B.I.G.
Stonecom President Larry Stone said he’s proud of his team’s efforts in developing this unique format. He said it’s part of the team’s long-term investment in the Upper Cumberland.
“When we constructed our new facility on Highway 111, we wanted to show how much we believed in this region’s future,” Stone said. “This is another part of that effort to serve listeners, community groups and be an outstanding way for local businesses to market their products and services.”
Stonecom operates 93-3 The Dawg, News Talk 94.1/AM 1600, Lite Rock 95.9, Rock 93-7, 106-9 Kicks Country and 920/101.9 WLIV. The company also serves Upper Cumberland high school sports through UCSportsNation.Com.
