Unbeknownst to many of the prior listeners of 99 Hits FM, not everyone in the North Country likes country music. Just because we are labeled a rural district does not automatically mean that everyone listens to the same genre of music. I was thrilled to find out that 99.3 had changed their format. I used to listen to them a long time ago before they switched to country and was excited to find out that my one-time favorite radio station was going to be changing to an 80’s music play list. I think it is fantastic. As for the lack of news and events, you should actually listen to the station. I hear national/local news plus sports on my way to work every morning. I know plenty of people who are happy that 99.3 has decided to change things up a bit.
