Happy New Year, and welcome to a new year and a new decade at Adams Radio Group here in Salisbury, Maryland. As of January 1, 2020, we have rebranded our news department as Delmarva News Network, a move focused on expanding our reach and better stating our goal.
Our new brand Delmarva News Network symbolizes the vast reach of our local news coverage. Our “network” of stations includes Delmarva’s largest group of FM radio stations: US 98.5 Everything Country, Kool Oldies 104.3 & 105.1 (WOCQ-HD2), Big Classic Rock 107.7, 93.5 The Beach and OC104. Each and every day Delmarva News Network provides comprehensive local news, weather, traffic and sports coverage to listeners on US 98.5, Kool Oldies 104.3 & 105.1 and Big Classic Rock 107.7 as well as digital news, weather, traffic and sports coverage on US985.com, Kool1043.com, BigClassicRock.com, WZBHRocks.com and OC104.com
Hunter Landon, News Director and Chief Anchor for Adams Radio Group said of the name modification: “Change is a good thing, and anytime we’re able to better define who we are to the audience, and allocate our resources to provide the best, most comprehensive local news broadcasts and coverage is a positive!” Landon anchors our morning and afternoon drive radio news broadcasts airing in the 6 a.m., 7 a.m. and 8 a.m. hours and 4 p.m., 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. hours.
Going forward the changes you’ll see include more breaking local stories ranging from structure fires to shooting incidents, enterprise reporting on substantial local events like business openings and construction, as well as local hourly, daily and weekly weather forecasts, up-to-the-minute traffic reports on accidents and road work and sports coverage of our regional professional teams in Baltimore, Washington and Philadelphia as well as local minor league teams and high school and college sports.
