iHeartMedia used the conclusion of its iHeartMedia Awards on Sunday evening to launch a new CHR in Little Rock AR.
Classic Hits “Big 94.9” KHKN Maumelle flipped to CHR “Hot 94.9” at 9pm following a simulcast of the iHeart Music Awards. The move brings a second CHR to the market to compete against Cumulus Media’s “Alice 107.7” KLAL. KHKN is launching its new format with the typical 10,000 songs-in-a-row commercial free and cash giveaways.
In the Fall 2017 Nielsen Audio ratings, KHKN ranked 11th among subscribing stations with a 2.6 share. KLAL was third with a 6.9.
