Thread: Sept. Book:

  1. #11
    🤔 Does anyone even know that 92.3/96.7 The Beat exists? IHeartRadio waited too long to officially launch an Urban here! They had plenty of years to join the game. Groove and Wild were great stations and that was the perfect time, but the blew it and everyone else launched Urbans. 92.3 nor 96.7 can even be heard in parts of Dekalb. Gwinnett is off the list period! I guess they launched for The Breakfast Club and national ads. They have 2 weekday local jocks, but i noticed none of the typical voice tracking during other times.

    IMHO: IHeart is not serious about Urban in the Atl. If they were they would move 105.3’s programming to 105.7, and do urban on 105.3. Of course the Alt. folks would go crazy. I believe IHeart could pull it off a really good Urban based on some of their Urbans in other markets, but is the Urban pie big enough to make it worth several months if not years of lost revenue to get that revenue slice?

    As an Alt guy - Pressing Alt-Delete on 105.7 would be a God send because it would leave room for Entercome or Cumulus to go after alternative. Iheart nationally sucks at alternative IMO.

    V-103 and Urban One have a lock on urban in ATL. Cox has had a man crush on V-103 for ages. Cox had a joint marketing alliance with Dickey called AURA, for Atlanta Urban Radio Alliance back when Dickey owned 104.7 and had urban on it. Cox with 104.1 (and 97.1 Jamz for a time) has picked up what CBS and Urban One don't get. Neither iHeart nor Cumulus would be wise to touch urban, unless they are sure they can take out one of the urban biggies pretty quickly.

    Doesn't Kiss 104 do really well? They're not really trying to do what V-103 does.

    Cox was trying to go directly at V-103 back in the 1990s when this all began. Kiss didn't really take off until they tried to serve a different part of the urban market, which they have done well with doing. Urban One has done something similar--chipping away at different parts of the urban market, without blowing all of their ammo on V-103.

    The only problem with that idea it would be several years before any corporate broadcaster could convince the home office that isn’t the demo that “failed” but rather the station that failed. How many years has NYC been with an ALT station?

    I've seen that happen before. I think we have all seen that happen before but I've also seen a rock station leave while being replaced by the basic same format under a different owners (96 Rock to Rock 100.5). I've seen some competition for Radio 105.7 fail while being replaced by yet another competitive force (X107 and 99x).

    Yes, your are right but I don't think that is the excuse every time.

    Is there such a thing as "urban alt."? Kind of an acoustic R & B?
