Scott Mullins, whose voice has been heard on local public radio for 20 years, is leaving WFPK-FM for a start-up Triple-A station in Milwaukee. Mullinsâ€™ last broadcast will be his long-running â€œBlues Partyâ€ on Saturday, Jan. 7.
Mullins began hosting the blues show in 1985; heâ€™s also handled other programming since the Public Radio Partnership formed in 1998.
Mullins will join WYMS-FM, which is gearing up as a AAA station, with a young professional focus in the morning and a more urban sound at night. Milwaukee is the nationâ€™s 33rd largest radio market. Louisville ranks 55th.
