KXJM Quietly Segues To Classic Hip-Hop

Jam'n Jammin 107.5 KXJM PortlandiHeartMedia Rhythmic CHR “Jam’n 107.5” KXJM Banks/Portland OR quietly dropped all of its currents and recurrents and has flipped to Classic Hip-Hop.

No changes to the name or on-air lineup accompany the change. KXJM had a Classic Hip-Hop component to its playlist since returning to the “Jam’n” name in 2014. KXJM gained a direct format competitor in August 2016 when Alpha Media debuted “We 96.3” KWEE West Linn as a current intensive Rhythmic CHR.

KXJM’s 1.8 share in the December 2016 Nielsen Audio ratings was barely ahead of KWEE’s 1.7, however KXJM had nearly double the cume.

    This apparently didn’t happen, at least yet. Do you have any thoughts as to when it might?

    Thank you for clearing that up. Between the similarities of the old and new positioners, including SOME recurrents and not recognizing the rest of the songs, I really thought there had been no change. I hope they start promoting this better soon or that 1.8 is going to start looking pretty good!

    Doesn’t look good that they’re almost losing to a station that just moved in from Bend not long ago

    I’m a little unclear. Was there actually a format change?
