Update 4/18: At 6:00am today, Kirkman Broadcasting debuted Classic Hits “Fun 98.9” playing “Charleston’s Greatest Hits” replacing Hot AC “Chick-FM“.
The new station debuts as the first affiliate of Tom Kent’s 24/7 Fun programming service. The station includes Bill Shannon in mornings, Tom Kent in afternoons and evenings, and Tom’s son Steve in middays. The station will also carry Kent’s specialty weekend programming.
Original Report 4/7: Kirkman Broadcasting Hot AC “98.9 Chick-FM” WWIK McClellanville, SC is heading for a new identity.
With the lack of Classic Hits in the Charleston market since the flip of 95.9 WIOP to Country last September, the registration of 989FunFM.com indicates the station may be preparing to fill that niche.
WWIK, which rimshots Charleston from the northeast of the market is usually a no-show in the local ratings.
