Bob & Tom get added to American Forces Radio Network
It's a natural alliance between the Premiere-syndicated Bob & Tom and the AFRN classic rock "Legacy" channel, and it begins in December. The show will be time-shifted so it runs in mornings in areas such as Europe, the Middle East and the Pacific. The "Legacy" service of AFRN (the onetime "Armed Forces Radio") is heard in 177 countries. The multi-award winning program boasts an impressive roster of better than 150 markets nationwide.
The Bob & Tom Show is available all over Michigan in places like Lansing, Grand Rapids, Flint, the Tri-Cities, Kalamazoo, and most of the northern lower peninsula, but not in Detroit. They had a short run, with little to no promotion, on WDTW (106.7 FM) about six years ago. The closest affiliate to Detroit's west and down river areas is WIOT-FM (104.7) in Toledo.
The duo got their start together in northern Michigan's FM 105.1, WGFM Cheboygan before moving to Indianapolis, their longtime home base.
