KKAQ-AM 1460 Thief River Falls Minnesota 1983

North Country 1460 KKAQ was a fairly new station in the summer of 1983. I’m not sure exactly when they signed on. But when I went to visit my grandparents that summer and did my first dial scan, I immediately noticed a station on 1460 that wasn’t there before. I’m surprised the FCC granted this allocation, given the close proxmity to KKXL/Grand Forks on 1440. But they did, so KKAQ became Thief River’s second AM station. Their format was country and remains so today. Any idea who the jock is here?

This was received/recorded from Michigan, ND, using a Pioneer AM/FM/cassette stereo unit. Source tape is a TDK D90.
