NEBRASKA CITY, Neb. – Before Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line and Sam Hunt, it was legends like Hank Williams Sr., Patsy Cline, Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings that made-up the country music landscape.
The music that made America great is playing again in Nebraska City, Otoe County and the surrounding region.
KNCY debuted a new sound at midnight on Monday. The new station, called Otoe County Country, features country music no younger than Dec. 31, 1989 and will air 24/7 on 1600 AM, 105.5 FM and ncn21.com.
Director of Operations Hunter Arterburn says the decision to change the format was made after careful discussion and the realization of what the region enjoys to listen too.
“In today’s music, it always seems like you hear, ‘this song isn’t country.’ Plus, on the ‘Woodhouse Ford Drive @ 5,’ some of the most requested music is classic country music. So, we decided to make the move to play the legends of the genre all the time.”
The latest news, sports and weather will still be available on KNCY, according to Arterburn. Market information, Husker athletics and Peru State sports will also still air on the station.
