Envision Takes On National Syndication For Hank FM

January 28, 2011: Envision Radio Networks will handle national syndication for Kroeger Media's Hank FM 24/7 Country format under a newly signed deal.

"Hank FM provides a new experience for radio stations to offer their listeners," Envision President/CEO Danno Wolkoff said.  “The format will give a broader musical choice in the crowded Country radio arena."

Hank FM is an Adult Hits-style Country format playing new acts like Lady Antebellum and Zac Brown Band along with established artists and "legend" acts such as Merle Haggard and Randy Travis.

"We are now in the age of the celestial jukebox," Hank FM creator and voice Howard Kroeger said. "The Internet, peer-to-peer file sharing, iTunes, TV, video games ,and the box office have all contributed towards remapping listeners' music tastes as we start this second decade of the 21st century. Wide variety-based formats are now a successful niche.  The success of the Bob/Jack format is hard evidence of that."
