Entercom Splash Makes Waves Across Seattle Radio Dial
Monday morning saw the first format flips since the Entercom/CBS deal closed. 94.1 KMPS has put a stop to the Christmas music and is now playing 10,000 “Relaxing Favorites”, such as Phil Collins, Adele, Stevie Wonder, Hall & Oates etc. This moved Hubbard’s 98.9 to jump at the “New Country” format. KVRQ promos promote the most music. The station has dumped the Classic Rock format.
ALT 102.9 is stunting with winding down the format and allowing the jocks to vent. That is unusual. Change is coming to this and other stations as Seattle radio undergoes a season of format changes up and down the AM & FM dials. Expect call letter changes as well.
