Today at 10:19AM, ET in Orlando, CBS RADIO’s WJHM-FM continued its evolution as a contemporary music station by introducing its new name 101.9 AMP RADIO. The station will continue to feature “All the Hits” from today’s popular artists including Justin Timberlake, Beyonce, Rihanna, One Direction, Miley Cyrus, Bruno Mars, and Katy Perry, among others. The pop station had previously been known as 102 JAMZ.
“This is the next step to better strengthen our brand as a pop music station,” says Bobby Smith, Program Director of the All New 101.9 AMP RADIO. “Exciting energy and the pulse of today’s pop music is what drives 101.9, and with our new AMP RADIO branding we’ve positioned ourselves to more closely reflect those traits. We are thrilled about the station’s transformation and know listeners will be, too.”
Added Dave Robbins, Senior Vice President and Market Manager, CBS RADIO Orlando, “WJHM has always been a highly attractive format for young adult listeners looking to discover new music. This latest development will increase the station’s already powerful reach with advertisers and listeners on air, online and through our mobile platforms.”
Music fans can hear AMP RADIO at 101.9FM in Orlando, online at www.1019ampradio.com, or via the Radio.com app available for a variety of mobile and tablet devices. The station will continue to be active on social media and involved in the local community, presenting exclusive concerts, events, and contests, as well as hosting remote broadcasts at different locations throughout the year.
