Austin’s 95.9 Texas Country debuts, KOKE goes online

Austin’s 95.9 Texas Country debuted May 24, 2024 at 12:00pm. 

The station, previously known as The New Hot 95.9 (KKMJ-HD3), will now play a blend of classic Country and contemporary artists from the Texas music scene, including George Strait, Willie Nelson, Waylon & the Boys, Aaron Watson, Cody Johnson, Kacey Musgraves and Cody Jinks.

“We’re delighted to launch Austin’s 95.9 Texas Country and continue delivering this wildly popular format to listeners on the FM dial,” said Doug Abernethy, Regional President, Audacy. “This station will offer the perfect blend of genre classics and the music shaping the Country music industry today.” 

On-air staff and programming updates will be made in the coming weeks. 

Since then, there have been other Austin country radio changes.   

99.3 KOKE-FM left the radio airwaves and went online only on June 1st. Bob Cole and Eric Raines left the morning show afterward, with Scotty Bennett and Amber Sorensen moving to the AM shift.
