Beginning July 31, 2016, Inside of Knoxville and WUTK (90.3 FM) formed a partnership to produce “Knoxcentric: Powered by Inside of Knoxville,” an hour-long radio show focused on downtown Knoxville. Running each Sunday morning from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM, the show is co-hosted by Inside of Knoxville’s Alan Sims (AKA Knoxville Urban Guy) and WUTK’s Jennell “JJ” Pershing. The fast-paced hour includes a review of events in downtown, interviews with current downtown movers and shakers, music from local musicians and a look at what’s coming up in the city.
You can tune into the show every Sunday morning at 10:00 AM on your FM dial at 90.3 FM, or stream it online. Below you’ll find guest lists for upcoming shows and podcasts from all the previous shows (Just click the date you’d like to hear).
Obviously, we’d love to have you listen and spread the word but, perhaps less obviously, we’re looking for more sponsors for the show. If you’d like to have your business information included during the segment, email me at KnoxvilleUrbanGuy@gmail.com and I’ll connect you up.
