WHEELING, W.Va. (WTRF) – Four radio stations were just bought by Ohio Midland Newsgroup, owners of ‘The River Radio.’ These stations include; Biggie Radio at 100.5, Willie – 100.1 (now referred to as River Talk), Kool FM at 105.5, and Rocky Radio – 96.5 (now referred to as The Rage).

As the now encompassing River Network, the company hopes to bring a local spin to things in The Valley.

Listeners are already adjusting to a couple changes, but the main goal is to keep the local disk jockeys on the air.

Well, we’ve already made a change. As of Monday, we added a live talk show on ‘River Talk’ on the 1290 and 101.1 signal. The Novotney Show. He airs weekdays from 4-6.

Johnny O has been working at Cool 105 going on nearly 40 years.

We found out in late September we were being sold to a local business here in the Ohio Valley who wanted to own some local radio stations and who wanted to give the Ohio Valley local radio again.
