CBS RADIO Hot AC WWFS (FRESH 102.7)/NEW YORK has brought back the legendary WNEW call letters from WASHINGTON, D.C., after a 10-year absence in THE BIG APPLE.
The WNEW calls are fondly remembered for the Progressive Rock format that launched on OCTOBER 30th, 1967 in NEW YORK. The station was the home of radio stars such as SCOTT MUNI, ALISON STEELE, DENNIS ELSAS, DAN NEER, RICHARD NEER, MEG GRIFFIN and JOHN ZACHERLE from the '60s through the '90s.
The WNEW calls returned at Noon YESTERDAY (3/15). Down in D.C., BLOOMBERG MEDIA's business News and Talk station replaces the WNEW calls with WDCH.
