About Us

New Country Z100 is an ALL Country, Southern Illinois based 50,000 watt radio station with studios located in Carterville, Illinois.  Our station is full of pride for Southern Illinois and we LOVE to give back to our local community!

Every year in March, since 1995, New Country Z100 has been host to the St. Jude Radiothon.  This is an event that we are ever so passionate about, as we help to raise money to find the cure for Childhood cancer!  Although the St. Jude Radiothon is simply a two day event focused around the effort of raising money for St. Jude, we create and participate in events all throughout the year in the effort to bring awareness and raise money for this wonderful cause.  Since 1995 New Country Z100 and Southern Illinois have raised $2,594,953.00 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital!!!
