KQPT/Chico 'Points' To Top 40 'Now'
March 21, 2011 at 9:57 AM (PT)
More changes in CHICO, CA as MAPLETON Modern AC KQPT (107 THE POINT) began stunting on FRIDAY (3/18) as RADIO GAGA, preselling a ticket giveaway to the show on WEDNESDAY (3/23) at the POWER BALANCE PAVILLION. Most recently Oldies KCEZ became Top 40 POWER 102 (NET NEWS 2/23), and Sports KRER became Adult Top 40 KCKS.
And, at 5a TODAY (3/21) the format did a full-on flip to Top 40 as 107.5 NOW-FM under the direction of PD MIKE SKOT, who will also continue as OM/PD at sister Top 40 KZBD/SPOKANE. Locally, MAPLETON/CHICO OM COYOTE McGEE will oversee things.
107.5 NOW-FM lineup is:
Mornings -- ELVIS DURAN
Middays -- RYAN SEACREST
Afternoons -- ROB BLAIR
Nights -- NEAL WEST
Overnights -- AUDI MAE SHUN
McGEE told ALL ACCESS, "We're very excited about putting on a great Top 40 in the market. We're the most live and local station in the format, with local personalities in afternoons and nights, where there is the most potential for audience interaction."
