Fringe Austin, the citys newest radio station, launched Monday, April 21 and brought your old morning show friends, J.B. and Sandy, back to the airwaves.
Fringe Austin is a joint venture between Cole and Jason Nassour, both of whom own KOKE FM, and it will be part of a five-station radio group known as the Austin Radio Network. Each station will be independently owned by local investors. Fringe Austin's profile will feature a mix of new rock and indie bands, reflecting the station's preference for off-center music that falls outside of the corporate radio realm.
The stations morning show will be helmed by Hager and McIlree, who left their longtime home on Mix 94.7 FM late last year. After nearly 18 years on the air, Hager left after station management decided not to renew his contract; McIlree soon followed. While looking for a new home on the radio, the two were attracted to Fringe's independent nature.
Fringe will also employ the talents of producer Jason Desjardins as well as program director and radio veteran Ray Seggern, formerly of 101X's Chillville. Seggern will fill in as the station's afternoon deejay.
