The station, launched in 2012 on a translator and an HD-3 channel (NET NEWS, 6/25/12), later added an AM signal (NET NEWS, 1/31/13). Although HO noted that (the signal doesn't reach much beyond the Perimeter," STREETZ 94.5 has seen its audience grow to "very respectable levels" that has "far exceeded expectations."
"It's been an absolutely phenomenal year," STREETZ owner STEVE HEGWOOD said. "I am pinching myself."
MISS SOPHIA, who was also recruited by V-103, chose STREETZ because "I felt that it was a better fit for my brand at this time."
