Country WMYL-FM (96.7 Merle)/Knoxville brings in "The Bud & Broadway Morning Show" beginning April 1. Bud & Broadway are the former morning hosts for WIL in St. Louis and currently being syndicated by Houston-based broadcast company SuiteRadio.

Bud Ford and Jerry Broadway said, "We're excited to be a part of a legendary market like Knoxville. And the station is called 'Merle.' Who wouldn't want to be a part of that?"

"We've made a lot of improvements in the 96.7 Merle brand," said Ron Meredith. "People are noticing. That has meant a lot of improvement as our brand has started to climb up in the Knoxville market. We improved the music and added some great programming elements, but we really have felt for a long time that the Knoxville country stations have been presenting weak morning shows that don't fit this market very well. Putting Bud & Broadway on in East Tennessee elevates the stakes for those weaknesses and places an authentic and funny morning show in the mix among these country stations."

"We're proud to have Bud & Broadway on in Knoxville," said SuiteRadio's Pat Fant. "These guys are hands down the funniest and friendliest Country Radio morning show I have ever heard, and they're perfect for East Tennessee."
