The Viper Rocks Near St. Louis Lance Venta | January 15, 2013 | In a flip that somehow got past everybody after Christmas, Westplex Broadcasting’s Hot AC “Westplex 100.7” KFNS-FM Troy, MO flipped to Classic Rock “The Viper” on December 27. Katy Kruze, who has worked at many St. Louis Rock stations will host middays under the new format, while the station picks up the syndicated Nights With Alice Cooper for nights.

Coinsidence or somethiing else. Log in to Reply Matt January 15, 2013 Seems silly to me. Most of the coverage area of this station will be competing against KSHE which dominates the St. Louis market and to a smaller extent K-HITS. Part of me is skeptical that they’ll gain more listeners with this move. Log in to Reply Add Comment Cancel reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
