Good Kitty: Area Radio Station Claims Major Country Music Awards

April 6, 2009


You may have seen some familiar voices during last night’s national broadcast of the Academy of Country Music awards.

Cat County 98.7 “Cat Pak” morning show personalities Dana Cervantes and Brent Lane were named the ACM’s Small Market Personalities of the Year. The station picked up a second ACM award last night, being named the Academy of County Music’s Station of the Year.

Cervantes and Lane, along with station co-owner and General Manager Mary Hoxeng were in Las Vegas for the awards ceremony. Their TV appearance came during special segments during the ACM show.

“It was nice to be recognized as representing Pensacola. Being at the ACM’s is an extraordinary trip and wonderful opportunity to see the glamour and glitz. It’s nice to be able to hang with the stars and get some great stories for our radio show,” Lane said.

The ACM statutes were presented to Cat Country 98.7 by Sugarland’s Christian Bush and Jennifer Nettles. Sugarland won CMA Vocal Duo of Year last year.

Hoxeng said, “It’s truly an honor to be able to represent Pensacola at the ACM’s and for (husband) Dave and I to be recognized for doing what we love to do in Pensacola.”

Cervantes and Lane will be broadcasting The Cat Pak with Brent & Dana show on Monday from Las Vegas sharing their Las Vegas stories.

Cervantes said, “It’s unbelievably great to be around the country stars, and all the excitement. I am very honored to be representing Pensacola. I can’t wait to bring home the hardware and some juicy stories.”

“We are all very excited and honored to win this prestigious award for the second time in three years, said Kevin King, operations manager for Cat Country 98.7.
