Update 3/31: The divorce has been finalized in Norfolk. Clear Channel has broken apart the simulcast of Urban AC “Kiss-FM” on 92.1 WKSA and 107.7 WKUS. At 3:00pm, 107.7 debuted its new “Movin 107.7” identity with a shift to Rhythmic AC. Clear Channel describes the station as “showcasing the best in retro, hip hop, R&B, classic dance hits and more from the 1990s, and will feature artists like Madonna, Prince, Beyonce, Earth Wind and Fire, Mariah Carey, Kool & The Gang, TLC, Michael Jackson, Black Eyed Peas and more. Travis Dylan, Operations Manager of Clear Channel’s Norfolk cluster will program the station.

Clear Channel has applied for the WMOV-FM call letters for use on 107.7.

The first hour of “Movin 107.7” featured:
2 Unlimited – Get Ready For This
The Gap Band – You Dropped A Bomb On Me
TLC – Waterfalls
Prince – Seven
Paperboy – Ditty
Cathy Dennis – C’mon And Get My Love
Michael Jackson – P.Y.T.
Shakira – Whenever, Wherever
Black Eyed Peas – I Gotta Feeling

Original Report 3/30: Clear Channel is preparing to break up its Urban AC “Kiss-FM” simulcast of 92.1 WKSA Moyock, NC and 107.7 WKUS Norfolk, VA.

Registrations were made by Clear Channel’s registrar on Monday for Movin1077FM.com and MyMovin1077.com. These domains pair well with an anonymous registration of Movin1077Norfolk.com in late February.

107.7 recently completed its upgrade from a 1.7kW Class A licensed to Windsor, VA to a 15kW Class B1 increasing its coverage over the entire market. The new signal duplicates much of the coverage of 92.1 making the need to simulcast moot.

WKUS and WKSA began simulcasting its current Urban AC format in October 2010, when they assumed the format from what is now Classic Hits “Magic 105.3” WVMA.

VARTV.com adds that Kiss APD/middayer Big Dose was let go today after ten years with the station.

    I’m guessing this will be aimed squarely at the older end of Z104 so that 103 Jamz can win the 18-34 crown.

    1. Aaron says

      Well, never mind. This is actually aimed at an audience that left Z104 behind years ago. I expected something like the current version of KTU but it looks like they went with something older-targeted.

  2. Q says

    Good bye Z104….I Love this station!!! Its the closest thing to 103.5 KTU in Long Island. This station has depth, but expand the song selection. Do a full 2 hours of 80’s and 90’s house on the weekends.
