New radio station coming to the Valley

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – Country music fans can now sing a new type of tune. Our media partner iHeart Media is expanding the brand of country music to Columbus and Phenix City areas.

The new station South 94.7 "The Legend" is a re-branding of classic country music, playing country music from the 70's, 80's, 90's, and early 2000's. This is also said to be the first ever station of its kind in the market.

"We launched 94.7 The Legend just this past week. It's a really great place for everybody to get their Classic Country.. you know George Strait, Garth Brooks, Alan Jackson, and George Jones. The response has been overwhelming," Paul Laseter said, program director of the radio station.
