GoJock.net To Feature New Christian Hot Music Chart

GOJOCK.net and GATEWAY CREATIVE Christian Rythmic KHZR (BOOST 101.9)/ST. LOUIS are partnering to bring a unifying new tool for radio stations on the hotter side of Christian music.
BOOST PD MIKE COUCHMAN commented "One of the biggest challenges for this emerging format is finding great music. It’s out there, but since there isn’t a traditional single-release infrastructure or cohesive chart in place, it’s been every man or woman for themselves when it comes to tracking the right songs down."
Enter GOJOCK.net’s custom chart solution: The Hot Chart. GOJOCK founder IZZY KNIGHT explains, "We’ve created a custom panel of reporters who have similar target audiences, missions, and music directions. All the songs they’re spinning, easily accessible in one place."
COUCHMAN added, "The Hot Chart gives decision-makers on the young, hot, and rhythmic ends a one-stop place for getting on the same page and learning what’s working for like-minded peers."
The introductory panel includes: NGEN/HOUSTON, HOT 95.9/ORLANDO, BOOST 101.9/ST. LOUIS, SOLUTION FM/BANGOR, ME, YES-FM/TOLEDO, OH, KXOJ-2/TULSA, POWER 92.7/MONROE, LA, PULSE 101.7/DES MOINES, POWER 88.3/PORT HURON, and ENERGY 99.1-3/NEW YORK.
Access to the full chart is free to all stations included on the chart. An updated daily Top 10 will also be available free at GOJOCK.net/TheHotChart. Top 10 chart is up now, with the full chart due to launch the week following CMB’s MOMENTUM conference.
COUCHMAN credits the flexibility and affordability of GOJOCK.net for making The Hot Chart possible, and KNIGHT says "The idea of GOJOCK is to solve the problems facing radio. From data issues, to testing, and in this case, charting a format that doesn't get the attention or service it deserves."
