Two days after CLEAR CHANNEL flipped Active Rock WKLS (PROJECT 9-6-1) to Top 40 Power 96.1 (NET NEWS, 8/29), CUMULUS Alternative WWWQ-HD2-W255CJ (99X AT 98.9) has announced on TWITTER and its FACEBOOK page that it will flip to Active Rock "98.9 THE BONE" TOMORROW at NOON.
"We are the saviors of rock," CUMULUS EVP/Co-COO JOHN DICKEY told AJC'S RODNEY HO. "We ran CLEAR CHANNEL out of format. We are going to save rock for all Atlantans ... CLEAR CHANNEL tried to kill off rock. We’re going to save it."
