CC Flips Atlanta's WKLS 96.1 To CHR


Wednesday, just after 7:00 PM, Clear Channel signed Project 9-6-1 off following a farewell message by Program Director/PM Drive Chris Williams, ending its Rock legacy with a playing of "Free Bird" by Lynyrd Skynyrd.

After stunting with an hour of older Top 40 hits and the opening chorus to "Ready or Not" by the Fugees, the station flipped to Top 40, branded as "Power 96.1." The first song on "Power" was "Party Rock Anthem" by LMFAO.  Listen to flip here.

Listen for Elvis Duran mornings, Ryan Seacrest middays, 9600 songs without commercials.

Dunwoody High School graduate and media mogul Ryan Seacrest made a surprise appearance at the Jennifer Lopez concert Wednesday night at Philips Arena to make the announcement, noting that his mom will be able to hear him again in Atlanta. (He started his career at Star 94 and has been on that station in syndication in recent years.)
