"After considering several different formats, this 'Next Generation of Classic Hits' clearly is the right choice at this time for the CORPUS CHRISTI market," BOGEY BROADCASTING Owner/GM SCOTT HOLT said. "CLEAR CHANNEL Oldies stations KMXR has retreated back into the '60s/'70s and our research told us CONVERGENT BROADCASTING Classic Hits KAJE is vulnerable in several different areas. In addition, TEJAS BROADCASTING Hot AC KLTG has recently dropped all '80s/'90s and gone to a very current format."
