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. In 2002, when crosstown CFBT launched its Rhythmic format as “94.5 The Beat”, CKZZ evolved towards Hot AC. As the 2000’s progressed, Z95.3’s Hot AC format lost more ground to a more mainstream Beat. Finally on June 5, 2007 the plug was pulled and then station was relaunched as Rhythmic AC “95 Crave” bringing back a lot of the music that Z95.3 had originally played in the early 90’s. http://formatchange.com/audio/281.mp3

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 on the wall for the country station known as “Froggy 94”. Rumors had abounded for months about a flip to something – top candidate was a format known as “The Buzz” – the slogan for the station 94.1 would become in January ’01. The difference was, in the Fall of ’00, “The Buzz” was the monikker for Entercom’s then hot 80s format, not Modern AC. When the Buzz format launched, there were high company hopes t...

CHR 106.1 WZNR becomes Rhythmic AC “Energy 106.1” WNRJ

In its short history on the air, the 106.1 frequency in the Tidewater has seen constant shuffling of formats as it looked to fill a niche in the market. Following its move into the Tidewater proper in March of 2004, the station has seen the following formats: 03/07/04 to 09/23/04 – Variety Hits “106.1 Bob-FM” WPYA 09/23/04 to 02/02/05 – Country “Kick 106” WKCK 02/02/05 to 09/21/06 – CHR “106.1 The Zone” WZNR The Zone had attempted to fill the Mainstream CHR void that had existed in the Tidewater since the Early 1990’s. Entercom’s pair of Adult CHR 94.9 The Point and Rhythmic CHR Z104 made the hole tough to fill. As the Rhythmic AC format took off in 2006, WZNR management felt they had found a niche that could be more success...

While Sunny 104.5 was ditching its Gold based AC format, Smooth Jazz was disappearing from 106.1 after a successful 13 year run.

Following a euology of the station by Program Director Michael Tozzi, and Daryl Hall’s “She’s Gone” the Black Eyed Peas’ “Let’s Get It Started” kicked off “Philly’s 106.1” and its shadowcast at 104.5. http://formatchange.com/audio/253.mp3
