Owned by married couple J. Davis and Jean Schempp, the couple purchased SUNNY 101.9 in Bottineau ND in 2002. In 2005 they built two new radio stations (94-9 the ZOO and 102-9 WGO) from the ground up in their hometown of Minot, ND - changing the media landscape in the Minot Region forever.  
The group, which is now known as the Hometown Radio Group, is still owned by J. and Jean and the couple continues to be engaged in the daily operation of the stations. Many of the staff that were on board when the stations were built are STILL with the company today.
