Hall Communications has registered Fun1013.com for AC “101 The Rose” WROZ Lancaster, PA. WROZ has utilized the “Rose” brand since shifting from Beautiful Music WNCE in 1992. In the Fall 2014 Nielsen Audio ratings WROZ was fourth in the Lancaster market with a 4.8 share, down sharply from the inverse 8.4 it held a year prior.

    This is a rebranding that should have happened long ago in my opinion. The “Rose” branding despite the local connotation makes one think of the Bette Midler song by that name and other soft love songs, which is far from the Hot(ish) AC the station is now playing Flo Rida and Iggy Azalea.

    Could WROZ-101.3 go CHR/Top-40??

    In New Bedford, Massachusetts, WFHN-107.1 (although it’s owned by Townsquare Media and not by WROZ owner Hall Communications), a CHR outlet, brands itself as “Fun 107”.

    Judging from the monicker they picked it sounds like adult Top 40 or Top 40/CHR will be the next format for the station.
