Cumulus announced that Country-formatted KRST-FM Albuquerque has adopted the NASH FM Country music and lifestyle brand, joining the growing list of what will eventually be more than 60 owned-and-operated Country stations operating under the NASH brand.
NASH FM 92.3 KRST will add “America’s Morning Show” with Blair Garner, Terri Clark and Chuck Wicks to its current lineup of NASH programming, which already includes “NASH Nights Live” with Shawn Parr and Elaina Smith and “Kickin’ It with Kix” with Kix Brooks and Suzanne Alexander. These shows orginate from the Nashville NASH campus, the nation’s only multimedia facility devoted solely to producing and distributing content based on the Country music lifestyle, including radio programming, TV/videos, magazines and events.
“We are pleased to introduce NASH FM 92.3 KRST to New Mexico as the NASH brand continues to expand throughout the country,” said John Dickey, Cumulus EVP/COO. “The NASH brand will complement the already robust Country-driven content that 92.3 listeners have come to love.”
“Integrating the multi-media star power of NASH into a heritage station like KRST just makes sense,” said Kris Abrams, PD for KRST. “Pairing Blair Garner and his AMS team, Kix Brooks, and Shawn Parr with 20 year Albuquerque personality Juan Velasco made it natural to put a little more Nashville in our name.”
