Premiere Radio Networks has announced that, with the addition of 102.5 KNIX-FM in Phoenix, Arizona, The Crook & Chase Countdown has hit a broadcasting milestone of 200 stations. The Nashville-based program joined Premiere’s lineup in October 2009. Since then, the program has continued to grow and receive industry recognition, including a 2010 nomination for an Academy of Country Music Award in the “National On-Air Personality” category.
Crook and Chase commented, “We welcome KNIX with open arms to our family of affiliates! It’s all about teamwork, and we are blessed to be working with the best!”
“KNIX is the definitive Country music brand in Arizona, and we’re excited to further solidify that position by adding Crook & Chase to the lineup,” says KNIX Program Director Mark Medina. The show has deep heritage, while still sounding current and fresh.”
Each week, Crook and Chase count down the top thirty country songs as they welcome stars including Taylor Swift, Keith Urban, Brad Paisley, Martina McBride, Kenny Chesney, Rascal Flatts and many others.
