Published 12:00am Sunday, July 8, 2012

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. — The Tri-State’s radio home for the country legends, Big Buck Country 101.5 FM, is excited to announce that Tri-State radio legend J.B. Miller will return to the airwaves Monday.

Miller, 51, of Ashland, Ky., will return to a familiar position as the host of “Miller in The Morning,” weekday mornings, from 6 a.m.-10 a.m., on WXBW-FM/Big Buck Country 101.5 FM.

In addition to waking up the Tri-State, Miller will continue to maintain his management role at the Huntington Area Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore.

“We are excited to have J.B. join our family here at Kindred Communications,” said Mike Kirtner, President of Kindred Communications, Inc. “Our Big Buck Country 101.5 listeners can now wake up, weekday mornings, listening to not only the music they grew up with, but also with the legendary voice and personality, they grew up with in the Tri-State.”

“I love the work that I’m doing with the Huntington Area Habitat for Humanity,” said Miller. “I’m looking forward to continuing the growth of the ReStore and I’m really looking forward to having a regular radio program again. It’s a passion of mine that I have missed greatly. I was born at Holzer, in Gallipolis, and pretty much spent my entire radio career in the Tri-State. I’m looking forward to broadcasting all up and down the Ohio Valley.”
