Cumulus Brings Country Back To New York
January 21, 2013 at 11:11 AM (PT)
A loud cheer from Country music fans was heard at 9:47a this morning, as their format returned to the #1 market on CUMULUS WNSH (formerly WRXP)/NEW YORK as 94.7 NASH FM "America's Country Station."
The first song was RANDY HOUSER's "How Country Feels," followed by:
ALAN JACKSON "Gone Country"
BRAD PAISLEY "Southern Comfort Zone"
BROOKS & DUNN "Boot Scootin' Boogie"
CARRIE UNDERWOOD "Blown Away"
LADY ANTEBELLUM "I Run To You"
THE BAND PERRY "Better Dig Two"
GARTH BROOKS "Friends In Low Places"
JASON ALDEAN "My Kinda Party"
TAYLOR SWIFT "Begin Again"
CUMULUS MEDIA's recently acquired WRXP spent the weekend stunting with "The New York City Wheel Of Formats" before settling on Country, a format that had been absent in the market for some time.
The stunt production and imaging was done at sister station WLS/CHICAGO, and brought to THE BIG APPLE by CUMULUS SVP/Corporate Programming JAN JEFFRIES.
