CLEAR CHANNEL MEDIA + ENTERTAINMENT/SEATTLE-TACOMA has flipped KNBQ from a simulcast of Sports KJR-A to Hot AC as "The New 102.9 NOW, Hit Music for the NORTHWEST." Touting itself as a Hot AC station on steroids," "The New HOT 102.9" is playing the first 10,000 songs in a row commercial-free.
"We’re excited to offer The New 102.9 NOW to our listeners," CCM+E/SEATTLE VP/Programming KEITH CUNNINGHAM said. "It’s the perfect musical complement to KISS and KUBE and will soon feature one of the best talent lineups in the country."
"This new brand builds and expands CLEAR CHANNEL/SEATTLE's already strong options for our listeners and partners," adds station PD ERIC POWERS. "The New 102.9 NOW fills the need for this programming in the market and is the perfect radio home for artists like ADELE, TRAIN, KATY PERRY, ONE REPUBLIC, LADY GAGA and more."
