    It appears that even though the Facebook page is up and displaying this information, the station has not flipped yet. I am listening over air right now and it just IDed with its usual female voiceover saying “Variety 99.3”. Tonight Tonight by Hot Chelle Rae was just played into Sara Bareilles’ Love Song. I checked the stream of Cumulus Media Network’s Hot AC format and they also just played those two songs. Perhaps the change to “Mixx 99.3” is coming in the next week or two.
