CLEAR CHANNEL MEDIA + ENTERTAINMENT Oldies KJR/SEATTLE has rebranded to “95.7 THE JET, SEATTLE’s Variety From the ’70s, ’80s and More,” beginning today at 10a PT. The station will offer a wider variety of music, including ’70s favorites like FLEETWOOD MAC, THE EAGLES and HEART, as well as ’80s artists like MADONNA, PRINCE and BON JOVI. The on-air staff will be announced soon.
“SEATTLE is a great radio town and listeners have a high musical passion and intellect,” CCM+E/SEATTLE VP/Programming KEITH CUNNINGHAM said.” What we learned talking directly with listeners and doing extensive research is that expectations for SEATTLE radio have changed, and wider playlists with more variety are desired. We saw the opportunity to take the best of 95.7 KJR FM, add more variety, and create a more modernized presentation. Re-branding as THE JET was a no-brainer and a nod to our love for SEATTLE’s history in aviation and airline manufacturing.”
The new station will give listeners a chance to win $1,000 each weekday starting MONDAY, AUGUST 11th, when they hear THE JET $1,000 Artist of the Day.
