February 3, 2016 at 12:15 PM (PT)
Programming and on-air vet JONATHAN WILDE has announced the creation of a hybrid Country and Pop format, which he has dubbed, appropriately, the COP format. As his release TODAY (2/3) explains, “COP erases the already blurred lines between the two biggest formats, Country and Hot AC/Top 40 … With musical textures sounding more and more alike, this concept finally blends the two together.” WILDE says the format skews female, current and upbeat, with a genre split of 60-70% Hot AC and 30-40% Country. He’s offering demos and more information here.
Formerly a CMA Personality of the Year award winner at BONNEVILLE Country KYGO/DENVER, WILDE also handled PD/wakeups at WILKS crosstown KWOF. Since 2014, he’s hosted mornings on BONNEVILLE AC KOSI/DENVER (NET NEWS 10/27/2014). Reach him here.
