Clear Channel’s Macon Moves

Peach 96.5 WPCH New Country 102.5 WZCH Macon Warner-Robbins

Update 3/22: 102.5 WZCH has dropped its simulcast of 96.5 WPCH and is currently stunting with a wheel of formats until Friday, March 25 at 4:00pm when it will debut its new format. While NewCountry1025.com is currently not active, we can confirm that will be the new format and name for the station as their new site is active at the this address.

Original Report 2/16: Clear Channel is planning on reentering the Country music market in Macon and Warner-Robbins, GA. The domain NewCountry1025.com was registered yesterday and while it now is redirecting to 102.5 KNIX Phoenix’s site, it had its Weather page showing Macon.

102.5 WZCH Warner-Robbins has been simulcasting Classic Hits “Peach 96.5” WPCH since September 2008. Prior to March 2008, when the stations swapped formats, 102.5 had been Country “The Bull” WEBL.

The move will attempt to pull a few shares away from Cumulus’ 99.1 WDEN, which has been creeping up on Clear Channel’s top ranked tandem of Urban AC “V101.7” WRBV and Urban 97.9 WIBB-FM.
