from Variety Hits AC to Hot AC
Indianapolis, IN – Entercom Indianapolis announced effective at 5pm today Eastern time; WNTR was re-launched to become Hot AC 1079 The Mix. “Mix will be artist driven and more current than before,” said WZPL Operations Director, J.R. Ammons. “Mix’s new Hot AC format will play more music than competitors in the market and deliver more of what women want, the best of 2000’s and today.”
“We are thrilled to bring this amazing mix of contemporary music to Indianapolis. Due to the tremendous success of Entercom’s Top-40 station, WZPL, there is a hole in the market for a station like 1079 The Mix,” said Jennifer Skjodt, Entercom Indianapolis VP and General Manager. “We are building on the strength of nearly 300,000 weekly WNTR listeners to create a better mix. Today’s launch is the perfect opportunity and timing for 1079 The Mix.”
