Radio One Shifts Signals In Atlanta
February 3, 2009 at 9:31 AM (PT)
In ATLANTA, RADIO ONE moves THE STEVE HARVEY MORNING SHOW from Urban AC WAMJ, which is at 102.5, to the former Smooth Jazz station, WJZZ, which broadcasts at 107.5. Black Gospel WPZE, which is at 97.5, is currently simulcasting on 107.5. WJZZ has a stronger city-grade signal in the ATLANTA metro.
Meanwhile, WPZE slides up from 97.5 to 102.5, which has a limited class A signal and licensed to MABLETON, GA.
Our sources say that these may not be permanent moves. It would appear RADIO ONE obviously is feeling the success of COX Urban AC WALR (KISS 104.5) and the transition from ARBITRON’s diary-based methodology to the PPM in the ATLANTA market.
