KDHT Format Wheel In Motion
Format Flips On Friday
November 17, 2009 at 5:07 PM (PT)
ALL ACCESS confirms that the winds of change are happening at EMMIS Top 40/Rhythmic KDHT (HOT 93.3)/AUSTIN, as the entire air staff is out. Exiting fulltime HOT 93.3 staffers include APD/afternooner BOOGIE; MD/nights DEUCE; middayer MIMI; and morning host D-TRAIN. Most of the parttime staff in programming and promotions were also let go.
KDHT is running jockless, currently with the same music, and word is the format wheel will spin and stop on FRIDAY. Unconfirmed is the format, but ALL ACCESS hears ... FM Talk as a very strong possibility.
While not commenting on KDHT's future, EMMIS President/Programming RICK CUMMINGS told ALL ACCESSS, "The staff there was among the best we have anywhere and we're very sorry to lose those folks."
