Q Moves & Wolf Returning To Abilene

95Q 96Q 95.1 The Wolf 96.1 Fox News Abilene KORQ KFNA Doud MediaDoud Media Group has moved CHR “Channel 95Q” KORQ Abilene TX from 95.1 to 96.1.

With “96Q” now in place on 96.1, out goes Talk “Fox News Abilene” KFNA. In a statement on Facebook explaining the format change, station GM Richard Doud bluntly states,

News / Talk has and remains my favorite radio format. From the time I was a little kid first hearing Rush Limbaugh I was hooked. So when the opportunity presented itself two and a half years ago to make 96.1 the first FM News / Talk station in Abilene, we jumped at the opportunity. Unfortunately after two and half years in the format, it has now become obvious that from a ratings and revenue perspective, FOX NEWS ABILENE did not receive enough support to make it viable product. It was with great sadness that we were forced to make the move we did this morning. Perhaps, sometime in the future, we may be able to give FM News / Talk another try. Thank you for listening, it’s been a pleasure serving you.

Prior to flipping to Talk in 2010, 96.1 had carried a Country format as “The Wolf“. That format has been resurrected on the 100kW 95.1 signal. No online presence exists for “95.1 The Wolf” yet, although WolfAbilene.com and a blank Facebook page were created on Sunday.
