CITY OF DALLAS Classical WRR/DALLAS has rolled out a new sound, with "new programs, longer music sets, and a renewed focus on live, locally-hosted classical music programming for NORTH TEXAS."
The new programming lineup begins at 6a, MONDAY, JANUARY 5th. Highlights of the first phase of the creation of the NEW 101.1 include:
- A move to only two commercial breaks per hour, allowing WRR to program longer, more significant works and adding more than four hours of music programming each week.
- Elimination of traffic, financial reports and other non-music features.
- More than 10 additional hours of locally-hosted programming each week, primarily during the weekday evening hours. The WRR weekday on-air hosts include:
- BARRY SAMSULA from 6-10a
- NANCY BRUNSON from noon-4p
- KEVIN PYTCHER from 4-6p
- ED BLAYLOCK from 6-7p
- MARY SEFZIK from 8-11p, along with hosting a SUNDAY program and providing backup hosting support
The syndicated program "Through the Night with PETER VAN DEGRAAF" will air during overnight.
