Boone, NC (March 9, 2016) - Many thoughts come to mind when contemplating a trip to the hospital. Where should I park? What time is surgery? Will the cafeteria food be good? Fortunately, for patients at Watauga Medical Center, some of these concerns are put at ease thanks in part to a compassionate nurse, an old piano and a sunlit chapel.

“Couldn't be more satisfied with the services as well as overall experience provided by High Country Radio. As a company having limited funds for advertisement, it can be frustrating. In making a decision of where to spend that money, the obvious focus is return on investment. I can’t say enough about the professionalism and more importantly, the overall effort of the staff at High Country Radio to meet the needs of my company. I went in expecting A and received A-Z. I was blown away every time I turned on the radio or logged on to FaceBook to see my brands being pushed in a new and creative way. Good people, great effort and solid execution.”
