Tennessee AM returns to the airwaves

By on Jun, 3 2014 with Comment 1

TowersCheatham County, TN’s only local radio station has returned to the airwaves 6/3. WQSV-AM Ashland City has been silent for the last year, but popular demand prompted the GM to bring it back. Ashland City is about 20 miles NW of Nashville.

“A lot of times you don’t miss something until it’s gone,” Richard “Corky” Albright, GM and radio personality, told Newschannel 5 Nashville. “We’ve had all kinds of people calling and taking about how happy they are the station is back on the air.”

WQSV will feature the same format as before—Folk/Variety with local news and weather. It will also feature Vanderbilt football games, along with local high school football games.

Albright will come out of retirement to run the station and broadcast the morning show.

Albright, who operated the station since 1990, shut it down in June of 2013 due to a lack of advertising.

However, Albright kept the FCC license after the station went off the air. Now he’s ready to start a new chapter.
