From WOW to The Bull: DJ makes Boise comeback

Last August, half of the morning country radio duo Rick & Carly abruptly left the airwaves. After Rick Dunn left Wow Country 104.3, that station changed its morning show several times over the next few months.

Now, Dunn has a new home. Starting next month, he will hold down afternoons on competitor 101.9 The Bull.

“Rick brings a massive amount of energy to the table, has deep insider knowledge of the market, and truly, truly cares about each and every listener,” Iliad Media Group CEO Darrell Calton said. “We hire for passion and creativity, and Rick checks those boxes perfectly.”

After leaving Boise last summer, Dunn left the market for Fargo, ND. Starting March 9th, he will take the mic from 3-7pm on The Bull.

101.9 The Bull topped the most-recent Boise radio ratings, taking the number one spot overall.
