Musical Shift At WNNX
April 13, 2009 at 6:18 AM (PT)
ALL ACCESS hears CUMULUS Rocker WNNX (ROCK 100.5)/ATLANTA has made a musical shift. Now heard on the station are COLDPLAY, KINGS OF LEON, WEEZER and INCUBUS, along with staples like TOM PETTY, RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS and the POLICE. There also appears to be a decidedly more current approach to the playlist.
Longtime ATLANTA morning show THE REGULAR GUYS were on the air this morning and it was business as usual. WNNX PD ROB ROBERTS reports the changes are "an evolution of the station; not a revolution."
CUMULUS Co-COO JOHN DICKEY added, "The changed we have made reflects our philosophy of programming a Rock station with an aim toward demographic balance. To be successful all brands need depth and breadth. Narrow works in cable programming when you bundle service. Great stations throw a big party under a large tent.
