» Best of the Coast 2013 – Cat Country 98.7 Honored

From InWeekly.net


The Cat’s Meow
This November will mark 10 whole years that Cat Country 98.7 has been on the air, not to mention six years for NewsRadio 1620. While several local radio stations are just playing syndicated shows, Cat Country/NewsRadio is the only locally owned and operated station. “Our mission is to serve the community in any way we can,” said General Manager and owner Mary Hoxeng. Whether you’re jamming out to Taylor Swift, listening to local news, or catching up with your favorite DJs, the radio station is keeping you entertained throughout the day. Beyond the radio waves, it’s rare to head to a Gulf Coast event and not see the country station’s “cool cat” mascot hanging out with the crowd and handing out free swag. It’s all part of the station’s service. The best part of owning a radio station in Pensacola is the people, Hoxeng said.  catcountry987.com
