KJET FM to air Exploring the NorthwestAnother radio station has been added to the Exploring the Northwest radio network -- KJET-FM 105.7, Aberdeen, Washington, will be carrying the show as of the first of the year. The show will be aired at 5:40 p.m. Monday through Friday.
KJET reaches many communities in Southwest Washington and is a "hot AC" format station.
KJET joins other stations in Northwest, Central and Eastern Washington who are now carrying the Exploring the Northwest radio show. The show is hosted by NorthwestTravelAdvisor.com publisher Cary Ordway and by Tony Miner, a longtime Seattle radio personality and avid traveler.
Mount Vernon's popular KBRC 1430 will add the show to its weekday lineup in early January. Exploring the Northwest will air weekdays just after the 8:30 a.m. news break on KBRC. The station provides news and information for the residents of Mt. Vernon and Skagit County in Northwest Washington.
Also carrying the show are Spokane's longtime popular news station KXLY 920 AM and Wenatchee's dominant news station, KPQ 560 AM. Both stations started airing the program in November.
Exploring the Northwest is an updated version of a show aired on 13 Washington stations for 10 years -- a show also hosted by Ordway and Miner.
"The show had an amazing audience for many years," Ordway said, "and we are so pleased that listeners and stations are anxious for us to bring the show back."
Ordway said the show will feature great getaways for couples, families, adventure-seekers and anyone else who loves to travel the Pacific Northwest. The first segments of the new updated Exploring the Northwest visit Lake Chelan, the Columbia Gorge, Victoria, Leavenworth and Seattle's Museum of Flight.
In Spokane, the show airs on KXLY 920 at 8:45 a.m. daily. In Wenatchee, the show is heard twice daily on KPQ 560 at 8:50 a.m. and 5:55 p.m.
