iHEARTMEDIA/DALLAS has officially flipped Alternative KDGE to debut Mainstream AC STAR 102.1, kicking off commercial-free with around-the-clock CHRISTMAS music through the holiday season. Shortly after CHRISTMAS, STAR 102.1 will play hits from major artists such as MADONNA, MAROON 5, MICHAEL JACKSON and KELLY CLARKSON.
The full programming lineup will be announced soon.
“We are excited to introduce the new STAR 102.1 to our listeners!" iHEARTMEDIA/DALLAS-FORT WORTH SVP/Programming PATRICK DAVIS said. "We believe this format will resonate well with the DALLAS/FORT WORTH audience and is a great complement to our other stations in the market. While we are kicking off commercial-free with CHRISTMAS music, we can’t wait to reveal the station’s full programming lineup in the upcoming weeks.”
Activer Rock sister KEGL (97.1 THE EAGLE) will become DALLAS-FORT WORTH’s official home to all things rock, now featuring music from former Alternative Rock station, THE EDGE (NET NEWS, 11/16), including hits from artists such as GREEN DAY, STONE TEMPLE PILOTS, NIRVANA and RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS.
