102.9 The Point Becomes X102.9

As one of the last All-80’s stations in the country 102.9 The Point became a victim of cluster programming. Sister station WJGL’s “96.9 The Eagle” 70’s and 80’s based Classic Hits format was stepping on its toes and not giving The Point much room to thrive. By flipping to Modern Rock, X102.9 is able to flank sister WFYV “Rock 105” from Clear Channel’s Modern Rock WPLA “107.3 The Planet”.

The Point went out with the same song that had launched it in nine years earlier: Simple Minds “Don’t You Forget About Me”. System of a Down’s “Chop Suey” ushered in X102.9’s life.
