WGNS has designed thousands of promotional items over the years. Below are just a small sample of past advertising related logo’s, materials and memorabilia. Some of these designs were never actually used on a promotional item and are in rough draft form.
The below photo was by Angie Walker and the design was by Scott Walker.
Below is a picture of a billboard from 1990. This is when WGNS made the switch from "Rock N' Roll" to news, sports and talk. Of course, we always aired news and sports, our format just changed to include even greater coverage of BOTH in 1990.
WGNS has aired high school games and MTSU sports since 1947. However, there was a short period when WGNS did not air MTSU athletics. That was between 1990 and 2005. During that time, UT was widely popular. That is no longer the case in Rutherford County. The Blue Raiders dominate the local sports scene.
This is a t-shirt design that was used in the 1980's. This is the era when "Rock N' Roll" was the music format. This design was drawn by Leeann Walker.
You may recal the Coca Cola Company that was located in Murfreesboro where the Discovery Center sits today on NW Broad St. WGNS teamed up with the company in the 1980's to offer special WGNS, COCA COLA Discounts.
This is a sweatshirt from the mid 1980's. WOW?! Look at those totally 80's neon colors! Oh man...

This was a sweatshirt from 1990. Notice, this logo is different from the one above that we used in 1993.
The following was an ad that was used in the Rutherford County phone book. This was used in 2012. Although the phone book is rarely used these days due to the internet, we believe it is important for our older generation of listeners to still be able to easily find us. That is why we were on the cover of the Yellow Pages in 2012 and 2013. If you are not on the cover - you are out of sight and out of mind. It is important to point out though, the phone book usually spends its life stuffed away in a drawer and rarely see's daylight. This ad was created by Scott Walker.
Below is a shirt design. This shirt idea never made it to Ideas Tees in Murfreesboro. Perhaps there is hope for it in the future? This idea was made by Scott Walker.

The top of these two ads was used in several print forms in the early part of 2007. These were made by Scott Walker. The bottom design was never used. It did not make the cut.

This was an idea that we put together to look like an old radio logo. We got the idea after seeing an old logo from a radio station in another state. They had a good idea! Scott Walker put these together.

This is supposed to be a 1970's look. This idea has not been used for anything. It was done by Scott Walker. The goal was to look kind of "cheesy"
