Locally-owned Radio!

Hall of fame radio personality Bobby Rich, legacy station manager Jim Arnold and local downtown champion Fletcher McCusker have joined forces to launch a new Tucson owned-and-operated commercial radio station in Tucson at 101.7FM and AM830. The trio of well-known Tucsonans acquired the stations and have converted to an original format of music and local, live personalities.

Branded as The DRIVE TUCSON, KDRI originates 24/7 broadcasting from downtown Tucson. The station is designed to appeal to baby boomers whose radio options have become overlooked and underserved by local radio. With a catalog of over 2,000 songs, the distinctive presentation will be unlike anything in the region and maybe in the country.

Listeners can hear the KDRI-AM830 signal while driving from the Mexican border to Phoenix. The DRIVE 101.7-FM signal can be heard all over the Tucson area, allowing for frequent road reports and local information. The music is familiar without playing the same 40 songs over and over, and you’ll be able to connect with local, live DJs.
