The Thunder has been silenced. Monday was the last day for fans to tune into Thunder 103.1, as the radio station goes quiet before a big change.
The radio station confirmed speculation on its Facebook page saying "after much discussion and debate... The management of Thunder 103.1 has decided that the time has come to make a change."
Monday was the last day broadcasting as "Thunder". They have been on the air for the last six years. The will be back on the air in the near future with a different name and sound, one they are leaving a surprise for now.
The station has received lots of calls and comments online.
CEO Alan Usher said, "Unfortunately people call and say, 'hey I don't like the change' they've only got me to blame. If they say, 'hey I love the change' I guess I get the reward in that too. Being local, you sure hope to have the pulse on central Nebraska and have a good understanding of what they want, what they need and really it's just one step of maybe many to come that we'll see here at GI Family Radio."
Usher said listeners to this local radio chain can expect more changes soon.
He promised a brand new radio station at 103.1 on the FM dial, which will come on the air Wednesday afternoon.
