2016 welcomes back Alternative 99X/ATLANTA, now calling WWWQ-HD2 98.9 FM home -- but as CUMULUS/ATLANTA OM ROB ROBERTS tells ALL ACCESS, "This will not be your father’s 99X."
"In 1992 99X debuted as one of the true pioneers in new music discovery," said ROBERTS. "Devoted to offering new artists a platform in one of AMERICA’s greatest cities, ATLANTA’s 99X became the center of a movement, a community. And now, 15 years into a new century, a new generation of artists are seeking a similar home. TWENTY-ONE PILOTS, THE 1975, COLD WAR KIDS and CAGE THE ELEPHANT share the airwaves with TAYLOR SWIFT, 5 SECONDS OF SUMMER and JUSTIN BIEBER on some stations, and the music of a past generation on others. 99X is here to give music mavens their favorite established artists and a voice to what’s next: SAINT MOTEL, THE WOMBATS, CATFISH AND THE BOTTLEMEN and the countless to come."
“99X will once again be ATLANTA’s unique source for new music discovery,” said PD GREG AUSHAM. “99X will be a station rooted solidly in today’s artists and devoted to looking ahead toward what’s next musically.”
