K945 Celebrates Its 17th Birthday [VIDEO]

It was on this day, August 12, 1996 that K945, then known as ‘The Big Dog,’ took to the airwaves in the Shreveport-Bossier City area. At the time, there hadn’t been a Top 40 radio station in the SBC for years. To say the station was well received would be putting it lightly!

At the time of the launch, I was fresh out of college and was assigned the task of playing George Clinton’s Atomic Dog over and over again along with several other part timers around the clock until Robert J. Wright took over as the ‘Big Dog’ on the dial!

What a cool staff we had! We are so fortunate and blessed to have four of the original on air team members still working in the building today… myself aka PJ Lacey, Robert J. Wright, Erin McCarty and Dennis Boddie. That kind of longevity generally doesn’t happen in the radio business… Actually, it’s downright rare!

We also remember a lot of other incredible talent that joined us along the way: Gary Robinson, Jennifer Thurman, Todd Chase, Donna Corina, Domino Stone, Michael Anthony, Russ Winston, Chris Evans, Shawn Dion, Andrew Gordon, Chris and Dee Dee, Tod Tucker and too many others to name. We, of course, will never forget the incredible Kidd Kraddick even though he graced our airwaves via Dallas.

So, today, here on our 17th birthday/anniversary, we want you to celebrate with us. We’d like to think we’ve put a few smiles on faces over the years and I promise that we will continue to strive to be a leader when it comes to serving our community.

The end of this month personally marks my 9th anniversary back with K945 after a brief hiatus to gallivant across the country. I guess that means I’ve been at the helm for just over half of the station’s life and I hope to remain so for many years to come. Dang! 10½ years at one station. Can you believe I was just 2 years old when I started?!

Happy birthday, K945!
