JONNIE KING: KHITS-96/ST. LOUIS


khits_bumper stkr 1 2001.jpg

AFTER THE SALE OF  KRJY-FM (Juke Box 96) to the new owners, Heritage Media, we changed the Format from "Oldies" to "Classic Rock".  The first day we went on-the-air with the new call letters K-HITS/96fm was March 24th, 1994.  I switched from doing the 7-Midnite Shift  to doing the "Dawn Patrol" Shift, or, Midnite-6am.

In the October of 2000, K-HITS was again sold, this time to Emmis Broadcasting. I stayed with the station until March 1, 2001.  Ironically, during the entire 7 years I did the All-Nite shift, ALL of the other shifts went through various personnel changes during that time, but mine was the ONLY one that NEVER changed.  It was the only one that stayed stable for the large nighttime audience that I'd built up over all those years.

In all, I spent a total of 17 Years at 96.3 in all of its varied incarnations: KADI/KRJY/ Joy 96/ J-96/Juke Box 96/K-HITS 96. When I left, it was the longest tenure that anyone had served with the station at that point in time.

THIS IS ANOTHER OF MY FAVORITE AIRCHECKS.  It's from May 29th, 1998, and I can say without hesitation or any ego involved, I was truly working hard, having fun, and, in complete control.  JK

Above: The St. Louis Soulard Mardi Gras Parade & Party claims to be the Second Biggest in the Country.  I've been there many times...and I don't doubt it !  That's my Soulard Mardi Gras Pass for our Remote, February, 1999, and you're looking at some of the crowd that showed up...what a non-stop BLAST that was !
