exradiodude: Robin Mitchell challenged KKNU a while back, and before that Cat Country. Worked there a whole three days after my Clear Channel KRKT departure, but that was because Marathon bought Cat Country and no hires were allowed.
I thought Mitchell did a great job and actually wanted to work for him, but don’t know the end of what all happened there as I moved out of state for a job.
Yeah, someone could come in and tackle KKNU, but you can’t stick to the old cookie cutter country. It would be a lot of work, but it’s possible. I only say that because I’ve won against other stations that I was told would be tough to beat.
It’s all in how you play the game, and use your “common” sense. Kind of like being an artist, you either don’t know how to paint, but others think you do, or you DO know how to paint, but the right people haven’t noticed yet. 🙂
I would bet to keep an eye on KKNU in the coming year. Everytime things get comfortable for a station, somebody else kicks in.
