B93.3 Has Fitz Counting Down Hits

Hubbard Radio personality, Fitz, was named the permanent host of Bob Kingsley’s Country Top 40 at the beginning of 2020.  The Texas native is the third host in the 45-year history of country music’s biggest, most-honored and longest-running national radio show. Since Bob Kingsley’s cancer diagnosis and ultimate passing in October of last year, country music superstars have
been sitting in for the late National Radio Hall of Famer. The multi-year partnership between Hubbard Radio and Nan Kingsley’s KCCS Production launched the new Bob Kingsley’s
Country Top 40 with Fitz on more than 300 stations worldwide and will feature audio from the Kingsley Archives. You can hear it weekends here at B93.3 in Brainerd and our other sister stations across Minnesota. 

“I listened to Bob Kingsley every weekend when I was a kid,” commented Fitz. “His loss is still
sinking in, but I am honored to be taking the reins from the man who instilled in me a lifelong
love of country music and the love of the ‘countdown.’ This moment is surreal, and I do not
take the responsibility lightly. I am excited and honored to carry his torch and hope that I can
do for the next generation of country music fans, what the legendary Bob Kingsley, did for me. I
am grateful to Nan Kingsley and hope to make her and Bob proud!”

On B93.3 the Country’s Top 40 with Fitz can be heard Saturday mornings from 8 am to 12 Noon.
