Joe Diffie has signed on with Griffin Communications as part of the Big Country 99.5 airstaff in Tulsa. Diffie will begin as host of the mid-day show on KXBL-FM remotely via voice-track from Nashville and his many tour stops beginning Monday, April 1. He can be heard on air from 10 a.m.-3 p.m., Monday through Friday on Big Country 99.5, and will continue to perform his full slate of concert appearances.
“Joe’s music is a reflection of the dominance of Oklahoma artists that have become part of the country music soundtrack across the nation,” said Brian Jennings, program director at Big Country. “And Big Country is the only station in Tulsa that is positioned to properly celebrate that legacy. Think about the influence that Oklahoma music has on the nation: Joe Diffie, Reba, Garth, Vince Gill, Toby Keith, Ronnie Dunn, Blake Shelton, Carrie Underwood…shall I go on? Having Joe on as part of the team brings Tulsa pride to his national status. I am so proud.”
The first time Diffie heard his music on the radio was on Big Country sister station, KVOO.
“When they played ‘Home’, that’s when it hit me that I was on my way,” says Diffie. “I’ve wanted to try my hand at voice work for a while now, so when Big Country approached me to host, it seemed like the perfect time and the perfect place. It’s even better that they’re allowing me to do it remotely so I can continue to tour as much as ever.”
