Twin Cities radio station BUZ'N is now 102.9 'The Wolf'

The station also announced its new morning show team.

Twin Cities radio station 102.9 FM has dropped its "BUZ'N" name and traded in for a new monicker, now calling itself "The Wolf." 

The country station began promoting a big change on Nov. 23, consistently saying "the buzz has worn off." The only big change the station appears to be making outside of adopting a new name is adding more classic country hits in addition to the new country it's known for. 

The station also announced its new morning show, "The Wolf Wake Up Crew," which features new morning show host Greg Thunder along with Mandy James and Paul Thomas, who live-streamed the moment on Facebook Live. Check it out right here

The morning show airs 5:30-9 a.m. Monday-Friday.

This is the third Twin Cities station Thunder has worked at, previously employed at KS95 (2004-2010) and most recently Cities 97.1 on the morning show with Keri Noble, who departed the station before Thanksgiving. 

Thomas will also host a new show, "Home Town Country Sunday Night," each week from 8-9 p.m.

Per standard operating procedure in radio, the station's call letters will remain the same: KMNB-FM, although you'll probably only hear that when the station legally identifies itself near the top of every hour. 

The latest Nielsen Audio Ratings show KMNB-FM ranks 14th in the Twin Cities market among listeners age 12+. 

BUZ'N debuted on Christmas Day 2011.
