United Stations Radio Networks has announced that the network will produce and distribute a new Country music program called “Serving Your Country” that will mix the Contemporary Country format with coverage of the activities in the realm of the U.S. military abroad and first responders at home. The two-hour weekly program is hosted by WUSN-FM (US-99.5) Chicago morning man “Ramblin” Ray Stevens. The show is the first program created for commercial, over-the-air radio stations centered on news, interviews, commentary, stories and listener interaction revolving primarily around the everyday heroes who make up our nation’s military personnel.
USRN Executive VP/Programming Andy Denemark said, “The concept for this show just seemed like a natural. Country radio stations, the Nashville community, the format’s biggest stars and even a number of our sponsors all do more than their fair share to show support for our American servicemen and women. We thought that if we could capture that spirit with a weekly program, we just might create a winning show that also pays it forward by honoring our bravest with awareness and recognition.”
