99.1 Honolulu

Jamz Quickly Returns To Honolulu

Following the flip of Rhythmic AC “ 93.9 Jamz” KHJZ Honolulu to Rhythmic CHR “93.9 The Beat” KUBT over Labor Day Weekend, iHeartMedia has quickly resurrected the former format on 99.1 K256AS/KUBT-HD2. “99.1 Jamz” replaces EDM “Evolution 99.1” on the translator and helps fill the void created by the departure of KHJZ and HHawaii Media’s Classic Hip-Hop “Hot 97.1” K246BR/KORL-HD2, which quietly flipped to 1980s Hits “Retro 97.1” in August. Meanwhile at KUBT, former “102.7 The Bomb” KDDB morning hosts Sam The Man & Hawaiian Ryan have joined The Beat for mornings.

Evolution Comes To Honolulu

Clear Channel has flipped Hawaiian “Hawai’i No Ka Oi” 99.1 K256AS Honolulu to EDM “Evolution 99.1“. Rebroadcasting 93.9 KHJZ-HD2, the move brings a second Dance station to the market joining “My 95.9” KXRG-LP. The locally programmed non-commercial LPFM will have to compete with the national programming from Evolution. The previous “Hawai’i No Ka Oi” format remains on 98.5 KDNN-HD2 and IHeartRadio.
