Johnny Chiang, Director of Operations for Cox Media Group Houston, said, “Country Legends 97.1 is proud to welcome Rowdy Yates back to Houston. The Original Country Gold program is the perfect complement to Houston’s number one station for the Legends of Country Music.” Yates added, “Houston will be a homecoming for me as Original Country Gold started as a local Houston broadcast 21 years ago. I can’t wait to welcome all the Houston listeners, new and old.”
