Nationally syndicated Tino Cochino Radio has signed two new Saga stations to its affiliate group – CHR station WNRG-FM/Energy 106.9 in Milwaukee, WI, and Urban Hip Hop station WMXZ-HD2/99.3 in Charleston, SC. Earlier this month, the show welcomed its first new affiliates of 2019 – KORQ/96Q in Abilene, TX, and KHQT/HOT 103.1 in Las Cruces, NM. Tino Cochino Radio is now heard on nearly 40 affiliates across the U.S.
George Laughlin, CEO, YEA Networks, said: “Tino Cochino Radio is off to a strong 2019, and the incredible momentum continues with the addition of four new affiliates in the first six weeks [of 2019] and ratings pops in new markets including Dallas. We’re excited to welcome these two powerhouse Saga stations in Charleston and Milwaukee and know their listeners are going to love what they hear.”
Annmarie Topel, General Manager, Milwaukee Radio Group, Saga Communications, said: “The first time we heard the show, we knew it had the flavor we needed to really stand out and excite our listeners. Milwaukee is more than ready for Tino Cochino, and we believe he’ll strike a nerve with the Energy 106.9 audience.”
Paul O’Malley, General Manager, Charleston Radio Group, Saga Communications, said, “Tino’s show is relevant, topical, and compelling, caters to a diverse audience and is impactful to the listeners and the advertisers.”
