WNNF 'Frequency 94-1' Evolves To 'Journey 94-1'
May 20, 2011 at 6:50 AM (PT)
Earlier this week, CUMULUS Hot AC WNNF (FREQUENCY 94-1)/CINCINNATI began stunting (NET NEWS 5/18). And at 9:41a (ET) a re-branded Hot AC, "JOURNEY 94-1, '90s, '80s & NOW, debuts," under sister AC WRRM (WARM 98) PD CHRIS LYNN, who will now program both stations. FREQUENCY 94-1 PD LISA BIELLO exits and can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
CUMULUS SVPP JAN JEFFRIES has been in the market prepping for the launch all week, and told ALL ACCESS, "We believe we have created something very special here. JOURNEY 94-1 takes CINCINNATI Pop music listeners and provides a haven for the great big Pop hits that defined Pop Radio during the years when music was a major part of their lives in the '80s and '90s.
"JOURNEY 94-1 will also play hits of today that are conducive to the format including artists like KATY PERRY, TRAIN, LADY GAGA, CEE-LO, MAROON 5, ADELE and others that adults will be able to enjoy and relate to."
The station began its new life with a montage of references to the classic WKRP IN CINCINNATI TV show before launching into JOURNEY's "Don't Stop Believing," followed by LENNY KRAVITZ "It Ain't Over Til It's Over" and KATY PERRY "ET."
