    The station’s “roots”? Sorry, but that comment from the AE makes me laugh. The station’s “roots” were in Tiffin as WTTF-FM.

    This gives the Toledo market two “80s to today” based country outlets, the other one being “98-3 Nash Icon” WMIM.

    These press releases crack me up. Honestly! For once I wish they were honest. “Our PD programs 4 hours out of a day, her airshift, to the delight of local listeners. Otherwise, please listen to this “local” IHR country station filled with corporate syndicated programming the rest of the 20 hours of the day.”

    TBH, the original IHR classic country station was actually fairly decent. They messed with it a few years ago, dropped nearly all of the 70s and 80s, and went heavily into the over repeated 90s and 00s. And, yes, it is very similar to the Nash Icon format.
