GREATER MEDIA AC WJRZ (MAGIC 100.1)/MONMOUTH-OCEAN has flipped back to Classic Hits, and unveiled the new 100.1 WJRZ this morning. The station, which originally debuted back on JULY 4th, 1976 on THE JERSEY SHORE, will play the greatest hits of the '60s, '70s and '80s. Artists include THE BEATLES, MICHAEL JACKSON, CHICAGO, BARRY WHITE, THE DOOBIE BROTHERS, THE SUPREMES, MADONNA and ELTON JOHN.
With the move, morning drive co-host DIANNE DEOLIVEIRA and afternooner TRIPP ROGERS have exited.
"WJRZ is now playing the heritage soundtrack of THE JERSEY SHORE," said SVP/Regional GM DANIEL A. FINN. "We’re returning to the legacy of WJRZ’s roots."
The station will remain jock-free until the first week of MAY, and the new on air lineup will be announced in the near future.
