October 16, 2014 at 7:52 AM (PT)
ALPHA MEDIA has flipped Hot AC WCLI (CLICK 101.5)/DAYTON to Classic Country (101.5 HANK FM), effective TODAY (10/16). Just two days ago, the station started playing all CHRISTMAS music and a format flip was suspected (NET NEWS 10/14).
According to the station's description, "101.5 HANK FM" will play iconic artists that made Country music popular, such as GARTH BROOKS, ALAN JACKSON, GEORGE STRAIT, REBA, SHANIA TWAIN and BROOKS & DUNN.
"The wise decision to add HANK FM in DAYTON becomes part of the foundation to help increase our value as a cluster in the market," said ALPHA MEDIA EVP/Programming SCOTT MAHALICK. "The icons of Country format connects us to a passionate and underserved audience that continues to grow."
BRAD WALDO will remain as PD for the station. "101.5 HANK FM" is currently running 10,000 commercial-free songs. Stream it here.
