Original Report 12/17: We know CBS Soft AC 102.5 KEZK St. Louis will relaunch as “Fresh 102.5” on December 27, however the changes may not end there in the Gateway City. Clear Channel may be matching CBS’ flip with one of its own. Over the past few weeks we’ve seen anonymous registrations made for GenX1003.com, GenXSaintLouis.com, and GenXStLouisOnline.com. Most recently GenXStLouis.com was registered by Joey Bond, the Nashville based Regional Online Content Manager for Clear Channel.
100.3 would be Modern AC “100.3 The Sound” which has yet to gain any traction since its flip from Urban last year. Sister station “93.7 The Bull” KSD has dropped its regular Country format for Christmas music, which warrants watching as well.
Instant Insight: With the rebranding at KEZK and sister Adult CHR “Y98” KYKY beginning to shift towards CHR, there could soon be quite a battle for adult audiences in St. Louis. How Clear Channel will make its move on this chess board will be one of the stories to watch in early 2011.
