Bigfoot Country Legends Debuts In State College
Seven Mountains Media launched Classic Country “Bigfoot Country Legends” with new WLEJ call letters on 98.7 Pleasant Gap/State College PA at noon today.
The new format doesn’t take direct aim at Forever Media’s “Big Froggy 101” 101.1 WFGE State College, but will instead chip away at its upper demos. The brand was developed by Seven Mountains Media Chief Programming Officer JC Burton and WLEJ will be programmed by Classic Hits WOWY 97.1’s Program Director Mike Shoenfelt.
The first hour of Bigfoot Country Legends consisted of:
Gay Nicholson’s – Bigfoot Song
Garth Brooks – Ain’t Goin’ Down Til The Sun Comes Up
Tracy Byrd – I’m from The Country
The Judds – Have Mercy
Kenny Chesney – When The Sun Goes Down
Travis Tritt – Country Club
Shania Twain – Any Man of Mine
Nitty Gritty Dirt Band – Fishin’ in the Dark
Rascal Flatts – Mayberry
Martina McBride – My Baby Loves Me
Brooks and Dunn – My Maria
Alabama – If You’re Gonna Play in Texas
Toby Keith – I Love This Bar
Faith Hill – Wild One
Keith Urban – But For The Grace of God
George Strait – Ocean Front Property
Tim McGraw – My Next Thirty Years
Original Report 3/19: Seven Mountains Media AAA “98.7 The Freq” WFEQ Pleasant Gap/State College PA has dropped its format and is stunting with a loop of Alan Jackson’s “Gone Country” ahead of a format change.
Between playing of the songs are effects of grunts and something eating a frog which is a reference to Forever Media’s “Big Froggy 101” 101.1 WFGE State College. Could that something be the “Bigfoot” that Seven Mountains brands all of its Country stations with?
While Program Director/morning host Dave Snyder has exited ahead of the format change, the brand will remain as a hosted webstream.
