It was a dark and stormy night…well sort of…when an intrepid group of citizens gathered in Fall 2015 to form Color Country Community Radio.
The beginning of any endeavor includes lots of legal paperwork, research, and attempts to serve demand. Board members have been asking Wayne County residents what they’d like to hear. The responses include interviews about local politics and history, music of various tastes – classical, jazz, country, and rock, local sports, radio drama, and more.
The history is young but richer for the input of many in this newly blended population of Wayne County.
KWAN is expected to launch an online version with on-demand programs in mid-August, 2016. Efforts are ongoing to get a broadcast license from the Federal Communications Commission. It is hoped that sometime in 2017, KWAN will be over the air as well as online.
