“Classic rock music station WQBK is moving from 103.5 and 103.9 FM to 105.7 FM, formerly Alt 105.7. The alternative format will take a summer break, said Brand Manager Steve Richards, while the transmitter is upgraded. Alt will then broadcast at 103.5 and 103.9.”
I wonder how much longer 104.9 will continue with its Alt format, though (I wonder if they’ve been welcoming former 105.7 listeners too)? Alt 105.7 to be fair was doing better in the ratings than 104.9 is (104.9 hasn’t even cracked a 1 share)They are now referring to themselves as Albany’s Only Alternative…
When alternative ends up on 103.5 / 103.9, the format will better surround Pamal’s 104.9. Also, with 103.5 having a rimshot into Utica, it will give that area the alternative format, something it does not have in that city now.Utica does have K-Rock at 94.9….
I thought K-Rock was more active rock than modern rock? (sometimes I wonder if 103.5 would be better off specifically targeting the Mohawk Valley rather than just simulcasting 103.9 too)
