How many times have you corrected someone on the correct pronunciation of Boise? Or Kuna? or Kamiah? How about Juliaetta?

Townsquare Media—which owns KIDO-AM, KISS-FM, Lite 107-FM, Mix 106-FM among other broadcast outlets—has been pushing out "The Idaho Cities Song" on its media platforms, attempting to set the record straight on some of the most mispronounced cities and towns in the Gem State.

The song was penned by Townsquare Media Production Director Peter Bierma, who admits that when he first moved to Idaho seven years ago, he too struggled with some of the cities' names.
