95.7 The Jet KJR-FM Seattle Bob Rivers Classic Rock Hits

A change is on the horizon at Clear Channel Classic Rock 95.7 KJR-FM Seattle.

Just as 950 KJR was a heritage Top 40 in Seattle, the Jet name has some history in the “Jet City” (home of Boeing) on 1590 KJET where it was one of the first Alternative Rock stations in the 1980s.

KJR-FM has shifted from a more pop oriented Classic Hits presentation to Classic Rock over the past few months despite keeping the “Seattle’s Greatest Hits” branding. That move left the station tied for eighth in the market with a 4.0 share in the June 2014 Nielsen Audio PPM ratings just behind CBS’ Classic Rock 102.5 KZOK (with a 5.2-4.1 drop).

It was reported as part of a deal that was later matched by Entercom that Clear Channel offered KRXQ Sacramento morning hosts Rob, Arnie and Dawn expanded syndication including a station in Seattle. While sister Active Rock rimshot “104.9 The Brew” KKBW Eatonville could’ve fit that role, the timing with the pending changes cannot be overlooked. Longtime Seattle morning host Bob Rivers currently holds the morning position at KJR-FM.
