WMOT, 89.5 FM, MTSU’s flagship public radio station founded in 1969, made the biggest, boldest leap in its history in September 2016 when it dedicated itself to an all Americana music format. Branded as “Roots Radio,” the initiative is a partnership with the music experts and on-air talent of Music City Roots, the Franklin-based weekly variety show that reaches the nation on radio and public television. At last, the Nashville region has a powerful radio station (100,000 watts) dedicated to the music most deeply connected to Music City’s legacy: classic country music, bluegrass, singer/songwriter, folk, soul, R&B and old-school rock and roll.
