iHEARTMEDIA Top 40/Rhythmic KBWX (WILD 104.9)/ST. LOUIS flips to Alternative as "THE NEW ALT 104.9, ST. LOUIS’ ALTERNATIVE ROCK," with THE WOODY SHOW returning to the ST. LOUIS airwaves syndicated from sister Alternative KYSR (ALT 98.7)/LOS ANGELES. Beginning in NOVEMBER, THE NEW ALT 104.9 will broadcast THE WOODY SHOW -- WOODY, RAVEY, GREG, MENACE, SEABASS and TONY “WHIPPING BOY” MOTT from 6-10a.
“ST. LOUIS has been very eager for a new Alternative rock brand,” said BETH DAVIS, Region President for iHEARTMEDIA ST. LOUIS. “We are excited to deliver on that request as well as the return of “THE WOODY SHOW” – I’m excited to watch how quickly WOODY will reinstate his relationship with both listeners and advertisers here in ST. LOUIS.”
iHEARTMEDIA/ST. LOUIS SVP/Programming A.J. said, “We are truly thrilled about the launch of the new Alt 104.9 and the return of “THE WOODY SHOW.” The strength of WOODY’s brand in this market coupled with the strategic launch of our new station will be like no other and will make an impact from day one."
WOODY said, “ST. LOUIS is really where 'THE WOODY SHOW' began. It's not only the city where I built my career, but it's also the place where I met my wife and where my kids were born. So to launch into syndication and for ST. LOUIS to be the first market is not only appropriate, but really special.”
The WOODY SHOW previously aired on crosstown Alternative KPNT (105.7 THE POINT).
