It’s Fresh

Anyone who had WCKG become Fresh 105.9 in the format pool – you win! The new Adult Contemporary format launched at 5 p.m. today.

The station’s target audience is women 25-54 (or somewhere in between), the same as crosstown competitor WLIT, who switched to Christmas music on Friday.

According to yes.com, here are the first five songs played on the station:

5:00 p Beatiful Day – U2
5:04 p Because of You – Kelly Clarkson
5:08 p Street Corner Symphony – Rob Thomas
5:12 p Makes Me Wonder – Maroon 5
5:16 p Hero – Enrique Iglesias

And the station is attacking “The Lite” on the air. Cool! (Only in that sense.)

By the Way: I didn’t know today’s kids listened to Kris Kross’ “Jump”, a song that came out – in 1992. Boy, the research department was way off on this one!
