Radio One Atlanta Launches Classic 102.9 FM


Today launched the all new “Atlanta’s Classic R n B” just in time for the New Year.  An up-tempo fun format playing the biggest Classic R n B songs from the 70s and 80s with artists like Rick James, Prince, The Gap Band, Earth Wind and Fire, The Whispers and even some classic funk.  Then on January 3rd, the debuts weekday 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. followed two weeks later with the Morning Show officially returning to Atlanta on January 16th.

Ever since Tom left the market, there has been an outcry for him to return to Atlanta,” said Tim Davies Regional Vice President and General Manager.  “We found the audience for our Boom format was too narrow.  By expanding the playlist and launching a fresh R & B sound with the Tom Joyner Morning Show in the morning and for the first time in Atlanta the DL Hughley show in the afternoons, Classix 102.9 will be a great new station for the market, and a perfect complement to our cluster.”

, VP of Programming and Operations announces Erwin Hill (Katt D) is promoted to PD.   “We love to promote from within our organization. I’ve had the pleasure to see Katt D in his role as for MAJIC 107.5/97.5 FM and Praise 102.5 FM. There’s no doubt he’s going to do some amazing things in his new role as Program Director for Classix 102.9.”
