KKPR FM (Kearney) ADDS NBA HALL OF FAMER CHARLIE TUNA

Kearney’s KKPR FM (Platte River Radio) has added syndicated radio personality Charlie Tuna for the station’s morning show. Tuna’s weekly ‘70s show has been heard on Sundays on KKPR for the past few years.  Tuna is a member of both the NBA Hall of Fame and the NAB Hall of Fame.

KKPR GM Craig Eckert first hired Tuna to do morning drive when he was a sophomore at Kearney High School in the 60’s. Tuna left for Los Angeles less than three years later and went on to enjoy one of the legendary careers in Radio history. 

"Home is where the heart is," Tuna told allaccess.com "There's nothing more important than your career coming full circle back to where you fell in love with your present career, and this is a great opportunity with our growing list of daily affiliates to show Nebraska what became of the kid they encouraged starting out.”
