93.9X Rocks Into Indianapolis
Cumulus Media has flipped CHR “Energy 93.9” WYRG Lawrence/Indianapolis IN to Rock “93.9 X” WNDX.
Positioned as “Indy’s Rock Station”, the new format launched at 12pm on Friday with Metallica “Enter Sandman”, Linkin Park “Faint”, and Bad Wolves “Zombie”. The station is running commercial-free for the holiday weekend.
Becoming redundant after Cumulus acquired CHR 99.5 WZPL from Entercom, the flip away from CHR to Rock places the station between iHeartMedia’s combo of Classic Rock “Q95” 94.7 WFBQ and Alternative “Alt 103.3” WOLT.
The Bert Show will move to Hot AC “107.9 The Mix” WNTR.
CUMULUS MEDIA announces that Energy 93.9/WYRG-FM flips to 93-9X, Indy’s Rock Station! The Indianapolis Rock audience can expect to hear songs from Led Zeppelin, Foo Fighters, AC/DC, Metallica, Nirvana, Guns n’ Roses and more on 93-9X. The station will run commercial-free through Memorial Day weekend. The Bert Show moves from WYRG to mornings on sister station 107.9 The Mix/WNTR-FM.
Chuck Fredrick, Vice President/Market Manager, Cumulus Indianapolis, said: “93-9X Indianapolis’s Rock Station is looking forward to serving the Rock enthusiast and the communities they live, work and celebrate in.”
Troy Hanson, Corporate Program Director, CUMULUS MEDIA, said: “We are excited to expand the successful 93X brand to Indianapolis with the new 93-9X. Shout out to (KXXR/MSP Program Director) Derek Madden, our brainchild on this project, as we fill a hole in the marketplace with a much-needed Rock station. The partnership opportunities this brand adds to our Indy cluster portfolio and Rock platform are limitless.”
