The Creek 100.9 will feature an Americana music format and aim to globally broadcast the best of the South’s roots music, thoughtful programming and city insight from Macon, Georgia as an independently-owned and operated radio station.
Local business owners Brad Evans, Wes Griffith and Rob Evans announce the purchase of Macon-based radio station 100.9 WNEX FM. The ownership is called Creek Media. “We want to bring back real radio to Macon,” said Brad. “This won’t be canned content. Our goal is to broadcast the best of Central Georgia to the world with authentic live music, lifestyle programming and compelling stories from our area. The 11th Hour has succeeded over the last 15 years because of this – we know how to be local. The Creek 100.9 FM will live and breathe our region.”
The Creek Media partners are no strangers to the Macon music scene. As the co-owner and publisher of the 11thHour alternative weekly newspaper and website, Brad Evans covers the local music scene since bringing the publication to Macon in 2001. Both Rob and Brad Evans (no relation) and Griffith are founding board members of the Bragg Jam Festival. Brad Evans and Griffith were also the original publishers of Georgia Music Magazine. While Griffith oversees Moonhanger Group’s management of the Cox Capitol Theatre, Rob Evans works as the venue’s production manager.
The locally owned and operated station will broadcast from 533 Cherry Street, in the heart of Downtown Macon. It will also feature a strong online presence, including a live stream website and various social media platforms.
