We’re two for two so far this week with our Net Gnome reports. On Sunday, we pondered whether Portland, OR would see the launch of Kool 105.9. At 1:05pm PDT, the change occurred as the station dropped Smooth Jazz for Classic Hits under the “Greatest Hits Of All Time” tagline.
Following Tom Grant’s “Change”, the station segued to the new format with Bob Seger’s “Old Time Rock & Roll”. We should note that in its short 6 years on the air, this is the fourth format for the station following Hot AC “Star”, Classic Hits “River”, and Smooth Jazz.
Meanwhile in Houston, we have confirmation that KIOL will become KHJK “103.7 Jack-FM” tomorrow at 10:37am CDT. More at the Houston Chronicle.
