July 26, 2010 at 11:43 AM (PT)
As first reported last FRIDAY (NET NEWS 7/23), CITADEL Hot AC WDVW flipped to Alternative Rock as "ROCK 92.3" with new call letters WRKN under PD JASON GINTY, who continues programming sister Rock KRDJ/LAFAYETTE, LA. STACEY BRADY stays on board handling music duties. The station will remain jockless for now.
GINTY previously spent time in NEW ORLEANS at former CLEAR CHANNEL Alternative KKND (106.7 THE END) and Rocker WRNO.
ROCK 92.3 PD JASON GINTY said, "NEW ORLEANS has been craving a REAL Alternative Rock station for years now. We couldn’t be more pumped about being able to bring rock back to the CRESCENT CITY and fill a much needed void in the market."
He added, "NEW ORLEANS is really rocking now and early response has been tremendously positive! We look forward to being here a long time!"
The station web site is up and running at www.rock923neworleans.com.
GINTY and BRADY will take music on TUESDAYS from 11a-1p (CT). Reach GINTY at (504) 309-0992 and BRADY at (504) 301-2626.
