Local Focus signs WNOX-FM


Local Focus Radio has signed a rep deal with Oakridge FM, bringing the heritage Knoxville FM, WNOX, into the fold.

Says GM Ed Brantley, regarding his decision to sign with Local Focus Radio: “We chose Local Focus Radio to represent WNOX News talk 100.3 in Knoxville because of their strong network of reps around the country and the reputation of Kay Olin, who is the best at the National Rep business.”

Kay Olin, President of Local Focus Radio, tells RBR-TVBR WNOX is among the group of stations that brought the company over the 400-client range. “We also recently added Magic Broadcasting down in Panama City, FL, and we continue to enjoy our relationship with Cherry Creek, Urban Broadcasting, Guarantee Broadcasting and others.”

She adds, “We really are enjoying a great second year. The first year was rebuilding a company that we had just built. But it’s coming back together so well. I feel really lucky because I’ve got such a great, strong team. We’re experiencing double-digit plus growth this year. It’s been a bittersweet week for us, because we lost one of our dearest clients this week with Elliott Klein’s passing. We loved Elliott.”
