Internet-only station WOAP Online to rename itself Mint City Radio
Dan Drolett, owner and manager of mid-Michigan internet radio station WOAP Online (www.woaponline.com), has announced that the station will change its name and internet address, effective June 1st, 2009. The station will be renamed Mint City Radio, and the station's new URL will be MintCityRadio.com.
All of the programming currently being aired on WOAP Online will continue to air on Mint City Radio.
"It's time for a new identity....one which will more accurately describe who we are and what we do", Drolett says. One other reason cited for the change is the recent purchase of WOAP-AM 1080 in Owosso, and the probability that the station will return to the air on a permanent basis. According to Drolett, "We adopted the WOAP call letters when the Owosso station was silent, because we wanted to revive the heritage of the old WOAP, but now that 1080 is likely returning to the air, it would just cause confusion to keep using these call letters".
Mint City Radio will be availabe to anyone using a computer or Wi-Fi internet radio, at MintCityRadio.com. Listeners can click the "Listen Live" link and hear the station 24 hours a day. The station features agricultural programs, old-time radio shows and hit music from the 70's through the 90's, as well as up-to-date weather forecasts from staff announcer Bryan Mix-Dean.
