After many days of flipping between formats, Cumulus Media has launched a country station on 94.7FM in New York City, called Nash 94.7.
The frequency had been playing all kinds of music after being taken over by Cumulus, with presenters on sister station WPLJ asking listeners which format they would like to hear on their ‘new’ station.
The first song at 9:47am was “How Country Feels” by Randy Houser, followed by Alan Jackson’s “She’s Gone Country”, and at the moment the station appears to be jockless.
The stunt was similar to how Star Radio North East is going through 10 formats in 10 days, with the most popular music choice expected to be part of the station’s re-launch.
A country music station has been absence in New York for 17 years since WYNY because KTU in 1996.
