The stations share an air staff and news department and play a similar mix of hit music from the 1970s through present day.
“The Boss” Tony Ross hosts the morning show from 6 until 9 a.m. EST each weekday, followed by a commercial-free hour of music from 9 until 10 a.m. General Manager Lenny Dessauer takes over from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m., and Tom Berg is on in the afternoons. News Director Mary Perren updates Marshall County headlines throughout the morning. Anita Goodan provides news coverage all afternoon, and Tyler Maffitt takes over with quick news updates during the evening hours and into early morning.
