Phil Posted July 13, 2011 Share Posted July 13, 2011 http://www.nydailynews.com/entertainment/tv/2011/07/11/2011-07-11_alternative_rock_is_replaced_by_radio_talk_on_wrxp_when_merlin_media_takes_over_.html The rock apparently will stop rolling Friday on WRXP (101.9 FM). That's the date, according to multiple trade sources, that the new Merlin Media, which is buying the station from Emmis, will take over the programming. Merlin has not officially announced a new format, but it seems clear it will not continue the alternative rock that replaced smooth jazz on 101.9 in February 2008. According to most speculation and inside reports, Coldplay, the White Stripes and Pearl Jam will be replaced by news or news/talk. The chief operating officer is Walter Sabo, who created the successful talk/oldies hybrid at WKXW (101.5 FM) in New Jersey. First K-Rock... now this. Guess I'm back to not listening to FM radio, ever. :( Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
