Top 40 97.1 AMP Radio/Los Angeles Debuts
February 20, 2009 at 6:02 PM (PT)
Following much speculation, rumors became reality (NET NEWS 2/18) as CBS Talker KLSX announced the move to Top 40 as L.A's HIT MUSIC CHANNEL, 97.1 AMP RADIO, and the station debuted at 5p TODAY (2/20) under VP/Programming KEVIN WEATHERLY with 10,000 songs in a row.
Initially a jockless, more-music presentation with some imaging between songs, the 97.1 AMP RADIO imaging was created and executed by KROQ's MIKE CRANK, TREVOR SHAND and JAKE KAPLAN.
97.1 AMP RADIO kicked off with a montage and then into KANYE WEST/Paranoid.
