The JACK FM name is MIA from CBS Adult Hits WCBS-HD2, both on the signal and the website. CBS RADIO VP/Classic Hits Programming and Oldies WCBS-FM PD BRIAN THOMAS confirms to ALL ACCESS, "It's gone from HD2, with a new name coming. The format is more of an '80s-based Adult Hits format than JACK."
JACK FM syndicator SPARKNET reportedly didn't want to be on an HD2 or streaming only station.
THOMAS liked it, though, adding, "We were happy with the JACK FM name and it's one of the top-5 streaming HD2 channels at CBS RADIO."
