Connoisseur Media Launches 100.5 HANK FM On KVWF-FM

Envision Networks® and Kroeger Media Inc. are excited to announce Connoisseur Media’s KVWF-FM/Wichita, Kansas as the latest affiliate of HANK FM®. With KVWF’s recent launch as 100.5 HANK FM®, the station joins over 200 affiliates on the Envision Country Network.

“I’m very excited that we will have a radio station that will give Wichita country music fans an opportunity to hear the artists and songs that made country music great. Back in March when we started playing 90s throwbacks our listeners asked us for more and that is exactly what 100.5 HANK FM® is going to do, give all fans of country music more of what they are wanting,” General Manager Doug Downs said.

“In the past year KVWF has dabbled in bringing back those great country hits from the 90s at the demand of our listeners. Little did we realize how passionate they would be once they got a taste!  The Hank format just seemed to be the perfect progression for KVWF and our listeners,” Program Director Pat James said.

From the creator of the Variety Hits Format and BOB FM™, Kroeger Media’s HANK FM® is a turnkey, 24/7 variety-based country radio format that provides unique personality-driven radio for your market that is in touch with the current listening trends and methodology used by your listeners.

Similar to its Adult Hits cousin BOB FM™, HANK FM® doesn’t play by the rules. HANK breaks the mold with a unique mix of over 1000 tested titles spanning from the 80’s, 90’s, 00’s and today. This wide and unique music library can be molded into three distinct HANK flavors that can be customized to meet any market’s needs: HANK Plays Everything Country, HANK Plays Legends of Country, and HANK Plays New Country.

HANK FM® offers different levels of programming packages available for both cash and barter. In addition to the rights to use the HANK name and logo, affiliates have access to a constantly updated music library, creative on-air copy and cutting-edge station imaging including voice, sweeper, promos and jingles.
