RADIO ONE Rhythmic AC KROI (BOOM 92)/HOUSTON has just flipped to Top 40 "RADIO NOW 92.1." The new Top 40 fills the void left when CBS RADIO Top 40/Mainstream KKHH (HOT 95.7)/HOUSTON flipped to Adult Hits "95.7 THE SPOT" (NET NEWS, 12/30).
Launching with 92 hours of commercial-free music, 92.1 RADIO NOW will feature artists such as TAYLOR SWIFT, ARIANA GRANDE, BRUNO MARS, SHAWN MENDES, CHAINSMOKERS, TWENTY ONE PILOTS, THE WEEKND, NICK JONAS and more.
“The New 92.1 RADIO NOW will reflect EMERGING music, trends and culture for the NOW generation of 18-34-year-old millennials here in HOUSTON,” RADIO ONE/HOUSTON OM/PD TERRI THOMAS said.
“With recent changes in the Top 40 radio landscape in the HOUSTON market, we believe that HOUSTON is ready for this new sound,” RADIO ONE/HOUSTON VP/GM GARY SPURGEON said.
Added RADIO ONE SVP/Programming JAY STEVENS, “We’re excited about this opportunity to bring a fresh innovative approach to Top 40 radio in H-TOWN.”
