“We were one of the first Radio Stations to broadcast the Jim Brickman show when it first premiered in the early 90’s,” said General Manager Kevin Page. “We and our audience loved Jim’s show. The music and wide variety of topics he talked about kept everyone entertained. Unfortunately when the show switched carriers we were not an affiliate of the Network and had to drop the show. With Envision Networks taking over syndication, we are very excited to be able to bring The Jim Brickman Show back to our audience.”
