After stunting all week, (NET NEWS 8/28) CROMWELL Hot AC WVNS (VENUS 102.5)/NASHVILLE flipped the switch today (8/29) at noon CT back to Top 40/Mainstream as WPRT (102.5 THE PARTY), using tag lines such as, "102.5 THE PARTY IS BACK," and "NASHVILLE'S HIT MUSIC."
The new station kicked off with PINK's song "Let's Get This Party Started" and will play 5,000 songs in a row commercial free just in time for the LABOR DAY weekend. Other songs heard in the first hour include JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE "Sexy Back," KATY PERRY, "I Kissed A Girl," and SHOP BOYZ "Party Like A Rockstar."
NASHVILLE OM/PD TROY HANSON commented, "The station is 'all about fun' and 'Hit Music' for the active lifestyle. PARTY is especially for women in their 20’s and 30’s and those who feel that way."
WPRT and brother station WBUZ (102.9 THE BUZZ) GM TINCY CROUSE added, "We’re glad to bring the PARTY back. We’ve had many requests since we made a change three years ago. A lot of people in NASHVILLE knew and loved the PARTY for nearly ten years. We hope they will again. We’ve sure had fun getting ready to get this PARTY started!"
