In 1951 , a local radio station started that is known and loved by so many today. WNXT has been on air for 69 years and is stronger than ever.
You all know their voices, but how familiar are you with their names? On your way to work, or at lunch, you will hear the voices of Steve Hayes and Holly Gail. If you’re listening to the news, you are listening to Mistie Cook and Sam McKibben. The sports (and other news) are brought to you by Chuck Greenslate and Mark Williams.
WNXT is broadcasted into all of, or parts of, 10 counties: Scioto, Lawrence, Pike, Jackson, Adams, Lewis, Greenup, Boyd, Carter, and Cabbel. You always know that you are on the homestretch whenever you can tune in without any static.
Within WNXT, there are many different programs and segments. The “Get Up & Go Show” can be heard every weekday morning with Steve Hayes. He will help get your day started with music, comedy, weather, birthdays, traffic, and more! On the way home, you can finish your day with Brad and Ashley!
Besides providing entertainment, news, and fun music for us while we're on-the-go, they are very involved in connecting the community together. Community Corner is another well-known segment. Mistie Cook talks about all of the positive things going on in the community.
On Monday mornings, Steve Hayes broadcasts the “SOMC Medical Moment” for viewers. The station also broadcast over 150 high school sporting events per school year.
It is no surprise that COVID-19 has affected them as well. They have been trying to keep everyone safe by limiting the number of people they allow inside their offices. A lot of interviews are being held over the phone, and prize winners are having their prizes mailed.
However, they have not let this slow them down! They have many upcoming shows and events to look forward to. Fox Sportsmouth (am1260 and 95.7fm) can be heard again for the Cincinnati Reds baseball games.
We are very happy to have partnered with WNXT and cannot wait to kick off the segments!
