Legendary Call letters

If you are of a certain age, you surely appreciate the call letters WKGN. 1340 AM was a top 40 mainstay for decades in Knoxville.

Fast forward to today and WKGN, still at 1340 and on the FM dial at 105.7, or perhaps more importantly on the "Fan Run Radio" app and via iHeart. The successful format is sports talk with a high propensity to feature Vols fan joe public with commentary and opinion via the telephone call ins.

A new line up debuted today...

The new morning team features Jon Reed, a WKGN vet, and adds Bob Baskerville.

10a-noon is now The GI Jake (Miller) show, with Marcus Young.

Noon-3p it's back to the mother ship with Fox Sports Radio.

The perennial station leader show "The Drive with Russell Smith" is on at 3p and keeps The Bear and adds Houston Kress from mornings.

There's a new evening show...hosted by William Patteson.'s still WKGN The Famous 1340, with a football, basketball, and baseball.
