"Bristol Broadcasting Company" is a radio station chain operating 21 stations in three Southern United States markets: the Tri-Cities area of upper-east Tennessee and southwest Virginia (receiving its name from the twin cities of Bristol, Virginia and Bristol, Tennessee); Paducah, Kentucky; and Charleston, West Virginia.
In each market it operates a country music station with a rabbit mascot and the slogan "24 carrot country", a Top 40/CHR station under the title "Electric", and every News/Talk station carries the name "Super Talk". Each respective genre of stations include identical jingles, voice imaging and playlists. Some stations also share disk jockeys through voice-tracking for over nights. The only differences in these stations are their frequencies and call signs.
Famous quotes containing the words bristol, broadcasting and/or company:
“Through the port comes the moon-shine astray!
It tips the guards cutlass and silvers this nook;
But twill die in the dawning of Billys last day.
A jewel-block theyll make of me to-morrow,
Pendant pearl from the yard-arm-end
Like the ear-drop I gave to Bristol Molly
O, tis me, not the sentence theyll suspend.”
—Herman Melville (18191891)
“We spend all day broadcasting on the radio and TV telling people back home whats happening here. And we learn whats happening here by spending all day monitoring the radio and TV broadcasts from back home.”
—P.J. (Patrick Jake)
“Men with secrets tend to be drawn to each other, not because they want to share what they know but because they need the company of the like-minded, the fellow afflicted.”
—Don Delillo (b. 1926)
