Alt 2K Debuts In Marion/Carbondale
Withers Broadcasting flipped AC 92.7 WVZA Herrin/Marion IL to Alternative “92.7 Alt 2K” over the Memorial Day holiday weekend.
Launching with a “1000 song commercial-free weekend”, the new format features a very broad playlist of Alternative songs from the past two decades leaning towards the lighter side of the format to flank sister Rock “TAO Rocks” 105.1 WTAO. WVZA is also promoting that the station’s former 80s music library can be heard on co-owned Classic Hits “Q106.3” WQRL.
The existing WVZA airstaff remains in place with Program Director Gavin ‘Murph’ Murphy in mornings, Stella in middays, and Sparky in afternoons.
