Austin Radio Network has relaunched Classic Hits “Classic 105.3” K287FG Austin/KTXX-HD4 Bee Cave as “105.3 The Bat“.
The move coincides with the completion of a shift to a Rock leaning playlist. “The Capital of Classic Hits” as it is being positioned, is promoting a three hour commercial-free block from 9am to 12pm weekdays. Kim Stewart, who currently hosts overnights for Cumulus’ “Nash Icon” brand, will also host afternoons for The Bat. Stewart is known in the Austin market for her time co-hosting mornings on Entercom AC “Majic 95.5” KKMJ from 2005 through 2010.
