RADIO ONE WNOW/CHARLOTTE is now OLD SCHOOL 105.3. This new format will feature the best old school Urban songs from the '70s and '80s and feature artists such as LUTHER VANDROSS, THE ISLEY BROTHERS, MICHAEL JACKSON and EARTH WIND & FIRE.
“Adult listeners in CHARLOTTE will now have a station that plays the music they know and love and can sing every word to,” said JAY STEVENS, RADIO ONE SVP/Programming. “OLD SCHOOL 105.3 is all about the memories and the emotions of these great old school songs.”
The format will resemble RADIO ONE’s Urban AC KSOC/DALLAS, which introduced a similar format last summer. “The DALLAS ratings confirm OLD SCHOOL 105.3’s potential,” said GARY WEISS, RADIO ONE RVP. “CHARLOTTE has a healthy appetite for old school music and we’ve fine tuned the mix for local tastes. This station is poised to explode.”
