1031 The Vulcan Returns Rock To Birmingham
January 13, 2011 at 3:54 PM (PT)
CLEAR CHANNEL/BIRMINGHAM has returned the Active Rock format to the airwaves as 103.1 THE VULCAN debuts on translator W276DQ as of 5p (CT) TODAY after being gone for 17 months, and is also heard on WQEN HD2, and WERC-A. Sister Top 40 WQEN (103.7 THE Q) PD KEITH ALLEN adds PD duties for the THE VULCAN.
This format flip followed just over a week of format stunting (NET NEWS 1/4) between six formats -- GenX, Oldies, Classic Country, Active Rock, Triple A, and Urban -- which listeners voted on at MyNewRadioStation.com.
ALLEN told ALL ACCESS, "The Active Rock format was the winner with 38% of the vote. This is pretty exciting and a lot of fun. There is as big demand for this music."
