Wake Up With FOX 9 jingle returns

FOX 9's fan-favorite jingle is back! Wake Up with FOX 9 began over 20 years ago and became an immediate hit with viewers. With the longest-running morning team in the market and the most local news in the morning, 2023 was the perfect time to reimagine the Wake Up campaign after an eight-year hiatus.

FOX 9 felt it was important to lean into nostalgia, so with the same primary team, Tom Butler, Alix Kendall, and Keith Marler, we shot aboard the light rail for our new Wake Up campaign. 

We collaborated with Megatrax, a production music library and distributor that makes custom music for stations all over the nation, to create the new rendition of the Wake Up song.

In addition to the new campaign, FOX 9 along with Gordon Ramsey's new show on FOX, Next Level Chef, is giving away $500 per day in a watch-and-win contest during the morning news the week of Feb. 13.

To celebrate the new campaign, we will be waking up with you at different locally owned coffee shops across the Twin Cities Metro. Come meet us and enjoy a coffee on us at the locations below (while supplies last).
