Whassup in HOTLANTA? CUMULUS is juggling two possible changes, with Rock WNNX (ROCK 100.5) teasing "Two great things will become one," and Active Rock WWWQ-HD2-W255CJ (98.8 THE BONE)/ATLANTA teasing that "big changes" are coming.
The BONE had been suggesting a change coming FRIDAY at 10a, and posted this on its FACEBOOK page this morning: "It's finally going to happen!!!! I will fill you in on the BIG NEWS at 10:10am!!!!!!!!" Promos on ROCK 100.5 have indicated an announcement coming on the air at 10a FRIDAY as well.
ALL ACCESS hears that the Active Rock music from THE BONE will be merged into ROCK 100.5, which will retain THE REGULAR GUYS in mornings and rock harder the rest of the day. Meanwhile, the translator will flip formats, with URLs and a FACEBOOK page reserved by CUMULUS reflecting the slogan "98.9 THE WALK" amidst rumors of a Triple A format.
