Scott Mullins heading north

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. Mullins’ last broadcast will be his long-running “Blues Party” on Saturday, Jan. 7.

Mullins began hosting the blues show in 1985; he’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 nation’s 33rd largest radio market. Louisville ranks 55th.
