The company that was then then known as Entercom initiated a reorganization of its programming at its Alternative and Country stations last September. Those changes included national midday and evening shows at their Country outlets, while the Alternative stations went to most jocks being heard on three or four stations plus national evening and overnight shows. Both also had new specialty weekend shows created and have moved to smaller programming teams overseeing each format.
Audacy is now preparing to make similar changes at another couple of formats. We know CHR will be one of them and based on last week’s cuts at 95.5 WPGC Washington DC, it appears Hip Hop stations will also see some form of restructuring. We’ve been told for a few weeks that the changes were due to take place between last Wednesday’s end of the Spring ratings survey and the end of the second quarter, which will be this upcoming Wednesday just ahead of July 4 holiday weekend. https://radioinsight.com/headlines/210094/the-diverging-plans-for-chr-at-audacy-and-iheartmedia/
