Kickin Kountry 101 Internet Radio Station

I have programmed many small, medium, and large markets over the years in FM terrestrial radio.  Just recently I took a dive into the world of digital broadcasting and wasn’t sure which product would be best for my station.  After much research, I ran across NextKast and absolutely fell in love with it!  The system is very user-friendly, it is great for doing a live shift as well as voice tracking, I love the fact that everything is all in one and you don’t have to have different products to attach to it for scheduling music, commercials, etc.  The remote VT manager has been a lifesaver for me and my team, sure there was a small learning curve but nothing like what other similar products have in the way of complexity and operations.  My team and I all love the fact that you can log in from anywhere with an internet connection and voice track your shift.  On top of that, Winston has been a huge help, he has spent countless hours on the phone and computer with me, in the beginning, showing me what I need to do, and was very helpful through it all.  I am very appreciative of what he and his team at NextKast have done to help Kickin Kountry 101 be the success it is!  We could not have done it without you!
