A new era of country music radio has begun in Knoxville.
WIVK's longtime morning show hosts, Andy and Alison, will be retiring after two decades. Their last show will be Friday, July 14.
On Wednesday, the duo introduced their successors. According to WIVK producer Jimmy Holt, Tony and Kris will take over the morning show duties on WIVK after Friday's final show with Andy and Alison.
