95.3: CKZZ “Z95.3″ becomes Rhythmic AC “95 Crave”

The powerhouse that lost its way. From its birth in 1991, Z95.3 (pronounced Zed 95.3) quickly established itself as Vancouver’s top hit music station with its Dance leaning Top-40 format which mainstreamed as the 90’s progressed.

94.1 The Buzz WMBZ Memphis flips to Rhythmic AC Snap! 94.1

This one is very much an example of the cause-and-effect of corporate mergers. Consider the previous format change at 94.1 FM. Entercom had just closed on the purchase of WOGY-FM from Sinclair Broadcasting in January, 2000. The ink was barely dry on this purchase when it became obvious to most observers that the writing was […]

CHR 106.1 WZNR becomes Rhythmic AC “Energy 106.1″ WNRJ

102.7 WNEW becomes “102.7 Blink”

It was a long time coming. What was once one of the most revered rock stations in the country, 102.7 WNEW lost its way in the mid-1990’s. Constant musical shifts: AAA, Alternative, Classic Rock, Mainstream Rock, back to Classic Rock took their toll on the audience. Finally an answer was found as the station hired […]

B100.3 KIBB becomes Mega 100 KCMG

Following the first-place-in-its-first book debut of New York’s Dance CHR WKTU (February 1996), it didn’t come as a surprise that a few stations across the country tried to clone the format in their own markets. KIBB (B-100) was one such station, and just like every other clone during that period, it failed miserably. KIBB began […]
