Hot 105.7 San Jose Moves Towards Top 40

Univision Rhythmic CHR “Hot 105.7” KVVF Santa Clara/San Jose & 100.7 KVVZ San Rafael/San Francisco has shifted to Mainstream Top 40 this week. A number of Mainstream currents and recurrents have been added to the playlist including Demi Lovato, Maroon 5, Portugal The Man, Taylor Swift, Chainsmokers, and Sia. The station is also playing two Spanish pop songs per hour. KVVF/KVVZ had only subscribed to the San Jose ratings where it registered a 2.1 share and placed it tied for 22nd in the market. The move makes it the only Top 40 targeting the South Bay uniquely but closer to Alpha Media’s Adult CHR “Mix 106” 106.5 KEZR in the market as well as Bonneville’s “99.7 Now” KMVQ and iHeartMedia’s “Wild 94.9” KYLD from San Franci...[Read More]

Univision Gets Hot In San Francisco

Update 3/17: After a weekend of capturing America’s imagination with the loop of “Hot In Herre”, the Bay Area won’t be completely cooling off as Univision officially launched “Hot 105.7“. Chuy Gomez, who exited Clear Channel’s 106.1 KMEL morning slot last August after twenty years with the station, will join Hot for afternoons. He will be reunited with former co-host DJ Mind Motion, who was let go by KMEL last November. Positioned as “San Fran’s #1 For The Most Hip Hop & R&B”, the new format is attacking KMEL more than KYLD with an Urban format focusing on Latino listeners much like sister “98.5 The Beat” KBBT San Antonio.

How #Nelly1057 Became A Viral Sensation

It was just supposed to be like any other format change stunt that takes place dozens of times each year across the country. Univision’s “Latino Mix” 105.7 KVVF Santa Clara/100.7 KVVZ San Rafael, CA began looping Nelly’s “Hot In Herre” at 3pm on Friday in preparation of a flip. There was nothing truly unique to the stunt. Just two weeks ago, Univision made a similar flip in Albuquerque as KKRG looped Frank Sinatra’s “New York, New York” for over four straight days before relaunching as Classic Hip-Hop “Yo 101.3“. WRWN Savannah, GA is currently stunting with Irish music for St. Patrick’s Day with nary a mention online. Even the use of “Hot In Herre” has been done before. 93.3 KXMG Austin (now KGSR) did the e...[Read More]
