WFGM Flips To Classic Country

Posted: 12 Jan 2017 01:31 PM PST

AJG Corporation Classic Hits Classic Top 40 93.1 WFGM-FM
Barrackville/Morgantown WV flipped to Classic Country 93.1 The River at the
start of 2017.

Positioned as True Country, the station is centered musically on the 1990s
with its playlist stretching from the 70s through 2010. The move comes as
AJG is swapping Country 97.9 WKKW to sister company West Virginia Radio

106.5 WWLW Clarksburg in September 2016, with its signal sharing
considerable overlap with WFGM-FM.

Dave & Mahoney Return To X107.5 Las Vegas

After leaving CBS Hot AC Mix 96.5 KHMX Houston, Dave Farra and Jason
Mahoney are returning to sister Alternative X107.5 KXTE Pahrump/Las Vegas.

Farra, Mahoney, and Daena DK Kramer left KXTE for KHMX in September 2015
after six years at the station. Kramer will not remain with the show when
it returns to Las Vegas on February 6.

Farra and Mahoney will supplant Marc Marco Orem in mornings at KXTE. Orem
joined KXTE in February 2016 along with Joe Jeetz Reeder. Jeetz quickly
jumped to Hubbard Rock 98.9 KVRQ Seattle in September, while Orem left in
December and was just named as new morning host at Beasley Country 99.5
WQYK Tampa.

KXTE X107.5 is thrilled to welcome back The Dave Mahoney Morning Show to
Las Vegas beginning Monday February 6, 2017. The show will air weekdays
from 6:00 – 10:00 AM and can be heard on-air, online at and through the mobile app.

“Dave and Mahoney live and breathe Las Vegas and are ingrained in the
history and lifestyle of X107.5,” said Ross Mahoney, KXTE 107.5 Program
Director. “They know the music, the community and understand what the
X107.5 brand means to the listeners. I couldn’t be more excited to have the
boys come home and do what they do best, entertain Las Vegas!”

Mahoney and I are beyond excited to return home to X107.5. Having been in
Las Vegas radio for over 10 years, we know there is no place that we would
rather be,” said Dave Farra. “The amazing community and the best
alternative station in the country are all things we couldnt stay away from
for long. It is an honor to be able to return to the listeners, radio
station, and city that we love. We cant wait to get started!

Dave and Mahoney previously hosted mornings on CBS RADIO Houston’s Mix 96-5
(KHMX-FM). Prior to that, the duo were a fixture on Las Vegas radio, and a
favorite on X107.5 where they first began their morning show in 2009.
Throughout the years they have won multiple awards including the KLAS Best
Radio show in 2010 and the Review Journals Best Local Radio Personalities
in 2013 and 2014. The duo are also actively involved in the community with
events like Help For The Holidays, Fight Holiday Hunger, and their annual
charity driven celebrity fantasy football league.
