KONK AM, Key West, Florida

KONK-1680AM Debuts May 26, 2009
Key West, Florida: Overseas Radio LLC has kicked off the new Key West radio station KONK-1680AM, "The Little Radio Station with a BIG VOICE". The new radio station (located at 1680 on the AM dial) represents a new talk-format station in the Florida Keys market.

The new broadcasts feature local personalities speaking on current issues, people and events delivered daily as "The Island Juice Experience". KONK-1680AM is creating a local theme that embraces the world, and through its webcast enables the world to connect to Key West.

KONK-1680AM will begin broadcasting on May 26 from 7 am to 7 pm, Monday through Friday, and will feature a variety of hosts, styles and opinions. Sir Peter Anderson, the Vice Admiral of the Conch Republic, actor and activist Richard Grusin, news director Don Riggs, real estate expert Barbara Bowers, eco-friendly Activist Barbara Bowers, arts and movie promoter Michael Shields, and administrative assistant Michael Epting are just a few of KONK-1680AM's on-air personalities.
KONK-AM is also currently developing additional evening and weekend programs to fill out the broadcast schedule.

Station Director Guy deBoer says, "KONK-1680AM is a custom-radio station with nothing off the shelf. Local Keys personalities will have direct input in deciding show topics and guests.

Nowhere else in the world is a station's non-music broadcast lineup designed specifically to meet the culture of where its message is originated and delivered. Our team has worked tirelessly to create a new local radio brand that will lead the way in opening public dialog and discussion."

Having grown up on the Key West rock radio of the past, deBoer identified an un-served demand for a new creative voice and developed KONK-1680AM to be that new presence in local talk radio.

"This new broadcast model will build the Key West and Florida Keys brand and expand beyond the great musical legacies of musicians and groups like Jimmy Buffett, Mile Marker 24 and Caffeine Carl," he said. "KONK-1680AM is a creative station that will represent Key West as a unique culture.

Our local radio show hosts will be the mainstay of the station's broadcasts. They will engage the local cultural scene, support our residents, and give voice to their takes on the issues and concerns regarding life in Key West."

The station launch marks the beginning of a new home for talk radio in the Florida Keys. With local listeners as well as listeners from around the world tuning in, our station will provide timely information and leads on what to do and see, and where to stay, making KONK-1680AM a companion to the fun and quirkiness of the Conch culture.

Just by listening one can join in the KONK-1680AM on-air family.

This new Key West-based station is located not far from the old Flagler Railroad tracks — the original end of the road. Look for new tracks in the new sound of KONK-1680AM;
