January 6, 2012 at 10:44 AM (PT)
CUMULUS News/Talk/Sports WXTL/SYRACUSE flips to Rock today. OM TOM MITCHELL announced the launch of “105.9 THE REBEL, WXTL.” MITCHELL stated “We talked to hundreds of rock music fans throughout CENTRAL NEW YORK, who kept telling us that they were tired of hearing the same 150 classic tracks over and over.”
“We’re giving CENTRAL NEW YORK a new and different choice for rock, with deeper album cuts and true variety. If you’re a fan of AEROSMITH, THE STONES, LED ZEPPELIN, VAN HALEN, DEF LEPPARD, STEVIE RAY VAUGHAN, U2, YES, THE POLICE, ZZ TOP and TALKING HEADS, you know they each have more than two or three great songs. You’ll hear the difference and love “THE REBEL 105.9.”
THE REBEL will continue to air the BOB & TOM MORNING SHOW, seven days a week 5-10a. The station launched without air personalities in the other dayparts, but plans to add them soon. PD for the station is HUNTER SCOTT, who also programs sister Active Rock WAQX. Check out the place holder at www.1059therebel.com
