Selected stations to air live from CRS 2010


Radio stations from across the country will broadcast live from Country Radio Seminar 2010 in the exhibit hall area, beginning Wednesday, Feb. 24, and continuing through Friday, Feb. 26, 2010.

The Morris Radio Group, of parent company Morris Communications, will send crews from its following Country-format stations to CRS this year:  KGNC (Amarillo, TX), KBRJ (Anchorage, AK), KYEZ (Salina, KS), WIBW (Topeka, KS), KAYO (Wasilla, AK) and KKRV (Wenatchee, WA).

“It’s impressive to see the entire Morris Group of Country stations, from Kansas to Alaska and from the Texas Panhandle to Washington, making the most of CRS,” says radio consultant Jaye Albright.  “These broadcasts will give their listeners the ability to experience some of the entertaining and educational aspects of CRS and hopefully set a trend, as more stations take advantage of this opportunity at future Country Radio Seminars.”

John Windus, from KKRV in Wenatchee, WA, will facilitate interview requests for each of the stations.

Says Windus, “Nashville and CRS are so special because it’s the only time during the year that we can connect our listeners with so many of their favorite artists.  The accessibility to artists that the labels provide remains unique to our format and is one of our ‘secret weapons.’  What the Morris Group is doing is special too, because we’re not just attending seminars, we’re also bringing listeners to the party.”

Exhibitors already announced for CRS-2010 include Avid Path, Ad Mall, Country Fastball, Operation Troop Aid, Moby in the Morning and Radiolicious.
