John Rich Helps Bring Country Music to the Big City

John Rich has already gone Country, but now he’s bringing Country all the way to New York City with a little help from a song.
Ocean County, N.J., is re-positioning two of its radio formats so they will extend into central New Jersey and New York City. The switch took place Wednesday, Sept. 15, and the first song to play was Rich's "Country Done Come To Town."
“I’m so pumped to be part of history in the making,” Rich said about the station’s expansion. “...[I]t is an honor for me to help kick off Country Music in NYC with ‘Country Done Come to Town.’”
Ocean County’s Country THUNDER 98.5FM will move up the dial to 106.5FM in Ocean County and also simulcast on 106.3FM in Monmouth County. HIT 106, which formerly broadcasted on 106.3FM/106.5FM will take its Top 40 format and re-position it on 98.5FM. THUNDER 98.5FM will become THUNDER 106 and expand its reach to bring Country Music to a new level in central New Jersey.
“Country Music is a format with an extremely loyal listener base”, said Rich Morena, General Manager and Partner of Press. “We saw the void in Monmouth County and the demand was overwhelming from our Monmouth County fan base and now we are expanding our reach to meet that demand.”
“Country Done Come to Town” is featured on Rich’s upcoming six pack release, Rich Rocks, for which a release date has not yet been set.
