March 21, 2008 at 3:34 PM (PT)
CUMULUS MEDIA has flipped Classic Hits WRQQ/NASHVILLE to Classic Rock under new PD AARON ROBERTS, who comes to the station from WIOT/TOLEDO.
Nothing is more exciting then being a part of building a station for the ground up and that’s exactly where we are headed," ROBERTS said. "BOB AND TOM rock and we want to match the sound of RQQ to them. It’s going to be a lot of fun."
"Hiring one of Rock radio’s premier PDs was the first step in creating a great new exciting brand of radio for NASHVILLE," CUMULUS/NASHVILLE Market Manager JOHN COLUMBUS said. "AARON’s reputation and abilities speak for themselves and I'm confident he will do for RQQ what he has done for every radio station he has programmed."
A typical playlist for the new station will include:
DEF LEPPARD "Rock Rock (Till You Drop)"
VAN HALEN "Drop Dead Legs"
OZZY OSBOURNE "Crazy Train"
FOO FIGHTERS "Everlong"
LED ZEPPELIN "Immigrant Song"
PEARL JAM "Alive"
AC/DC "For Those About to Rock"
Besides BOB & TOM in the morning, the station will have KAREN KEELEY in middays and MAC in afternoons.
