WICHITA — No one involved is talking, but it looks like there’s a chance Brett Harris may soon have a new radio home.
According to an FCC filing, Wichitans Shane and Kianne Prill and their Air Capitol Media Group are taking over KANR, 99.7-FM. The station currently plays regional Mexican music.
Neither of the Prills returned calls for comment.
A KANR employee says a format switch is coming May 1. Station owner Dan Smith won’t comment.
“I don’t have anything to say,” he says.
Harris isn’t talking, either. He answered one call and said he’d call back but didn’t. Since then, he hasn’t answered several calls.
After 22 years at B98, Harris was told in July that Clear Channel Radio wanted “to take the morning show in a new direction.”
His morning co-host, Tracy Cassidy, remains at the station with Harris’ replacement, Adam “Lukas” Cox.
Harris was paid through December. At that point, his six-month noncompete began, so he’ll be available to be back on Wichita radio this summer.
