WNCW seeks new show host

We received this note from Dennis Jones, co-host of the popular Goin’ Across The Mountain program on WNCW-FM in Spindale, North Carolina.

WNCW would like to pass along our best wishes and thoughts for Goin’ Across The Mountain co-host Cort Riggs. Due to family and business obligations he will no longer be a regular part of WNCW????s Saturday afternoon. In his short tenure, Cort added much to our Saturdays and we are very sad to see him go. He has expressed his warmest regards to the many devotees of Traditional and Contemporary Bluegrass music and wants all the fans to know his deep gratitude for their support of Goin’ Across The Mountain.

WNCW is beginning the search for a permanent replacement. We are looking for that very special combination of historical Bluegrass music background, knowledge of today’s Contemporary groups and a strong on-air presence. If you are in the immediate WNCW/Spindale studios area and are interested, contact us at GATM Bluegrass DJ Search PO Box 804 Spindale NC 28160 with a short cover letter and a scoped air check CD.

For information by email, contact us at ele@wncw.org or dennis@wncw.org.
