The Wise Guys are back, entertaining on KOOL 107.1 FM station!

After a year off, one of Spokane's most popular morning radio shows returned to the airwaves this week at KOOL 107.1 FM. Rob Harder and Mark Holman (the Wise Guys) had been heard mornings on KISS 98.1 FM for nearly 25 years. Then, last October their morning show suddenly disappeared along with scores of other radio personalities around the country in an apparent cost cutting move by their stations parent company Clear Channel Broadcasting.

Owners of the brand new station KOOL 107.1 FM contacted the duo and struck a deal to put them back on the air. The station, KOOL 107.1 FM, features a variety of popular songs from the 70's, 80's, 90's, and today from artists like The Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, Elton John, Phil Collins, Train and Adele.
