ALL ACCESS tipped you that RADIO ONE had released the entire local air staff of Smooth Jazz WJZZ/ATLANTA, including PD DAVE KOSH and GREG FITZGERALD were out in anticipation of a format flip (NET NEWS 1/14).
The format wheel was spinning -- and has landed on Urban AC. The station is positioning itself as "THE ALL NEW MAJIC 107 5, ATLANTA'S BEST MIX OF R&B." The station voice is KIPP KELLY (www.kippkelly.com).
VP/Market Mgr. TIM DAVIES told ALL ACCESS, "we fired up the new MAJIC 107.5 last night, commercial free, playing ATLANTA's best mix of R&B. MAJIC 107.5 is a great compliment to our RADIO ONE cluster, as we build the preeminent cluster aimed at the African-American listener."
Recent songs in the mix include:
R. KELLY - I Can't Sleep Baby (If I)
MUSIQ SOULCHILD - Teachme
SOUNDS OF BLACKNESS - Hold On (Change Is Comin')
L.T.D. - Where Did We Go Wrong
