Atlanta Radio: WKHX Unveils New AM Show, New Positioner

Cumulus Media announces that Country WKHX Kicks 101.5 FM in Atlanta debuted its new morning show today.

The new show, “Caddy, CJ and Ali”, hit the airwaves at 6am with co-hosts Cadillac Jack, CJ and Ali Mac.

Former morning show co-host Dallas McCade, who was promoted to Kicks 101.5 Music Director earlier this week, also debuts today as host of Middays on Kicks 101.5 from 10am-3pm, her new permanent time slot. New morning co-host Ali Mac formerly hosted Middays on Kicks 101.5, while CJ segues to Mornings from his previous Kicks 101.5 PM Drive show (3pm-7pm).

Caddy, CJ and Ali got the party started immediately this morning with contests for Kicks 101.5 listeners to win VIP experiences with Kicks 101.5 Country Fair 2017 artists Darius Rucker and Randy Houser, and the station’s Crock Fest 2017 headliner, Toby Keith.

The “Caddy, CJ & Ali” show will also pay a personal visit next week to one lucky listener who will win a VIP experience with Brantley Gilbert.

In addition, music from NASH Next 2017 contestants will air on the new morning show, and NASH Next contestant selfie videos will be featured on Kicks 101.5’s social media platforms to encourage participation before the NASH Next 2017 June 30th deadline.

Concurrent with the line-up changes, Kicks 101.5 adopts the new slogan, “Georgia’s Country For Life”.

Program Director Scott Lindy describes the positioner as: “A phrase that embodies what Kicks 101.5 has meant to Atlanta and North Georgia for years. Millions of country fans heard Georgia-born country stars like Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean, Zac Brown, Thomas Rhett and Billy Currington for the very first time in their lives while listening to Kicks 101.5 and that tradition continues today. The future of country music is what our history is all about.”
