650 AM WSM LAUNCHES NEW LIFESTYLE SHOW HOSTED BY NAN KELLEY AND DEVON O’DAY
NASHVILLE, TN — Country radio icon 650 AM WSM today announced the March 1 premiere of Nashville Today, an all-new afternoon drive show hosted by industry veterans Nan Kelley and Devon O’Day. Nashville Today will air Monday – Friday from 3-6 p.m. CT. The show can also be heard online at www.wsmonline.com and via the station’s mobile app.
A lifestyle and entertainment show, Nashville Today will provide listeners with an appealing and informative look at all things Nashville, connecting them with the great vibe and energetic lifestyle that is Music City.
The nation’s attention has turned to Nashville as one of the most promising places to live and work. Among the city’s most recent accolades have been a top ranking by CNN as a “City Where Startups Thrive” as well as recognition from Travel+Leisure as one of “America’s Best Cities.” The city’s friendly locals, growing food scene, job potential, great music, and strong Southern sensibilities are some of the things that both make Nashville so unique and will make Nashville Today entertaining.
“I moved to Nashville to sing and dance at Opryland. My television career began in studio A at the Opry House, and I’ve hosted many Opry Live episodes from both the Opry House and the Ryman, so I’ve always felt like family in this circle,” said Kelley. “To now become an official family member at WSM as part of an innovative, fun, informative concept like Nashville Today is full circle destiny for me and that’s so exciting! Nashville and the area have so much to offer, and Devon and I plus our guests are going to dive in daily to the rich pool that is our town, our community, and our lifestyle.”
O’Day adds, “We want Nashville Today to be appointment listening that embraces all the richness of Nashville. We want compelling stories that keep you hanging on until the last word, live music that you won’t hear anywhere else, and a truly organic listening experience that simply exists nowhere else in the world except WSM.”
“Nashville Today will fill a void in the radio landscape,” said Chris Kulick, WSM General Manager. “This show will celebrate the growth of Nashville while paying homage to the legacy of WSM. With the advent of digital technology and our 50,000-watt Clear Channel signal, we are poised to deliver a taste of the Nashville Lifestyle to the entire country.”
