WVBZ is now an alternative station at 105.7.

GREENSBORO, N.C. — Triad radio fans who had listened to 100.3 “The Buzz” and “105.7 Now” may have noticed some recent changes to the stations.

The two stations switched frequencies and made some other changes that went into effect earlier this week.

WVBZ The Buzz has moved to 105.7 FM and now plays “alternative” music, as opposed to the rock it used to play.

The Buzz now features artists like the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Mumford & Sons, Foo Fighters, Muse and Linkin Park, according to Clear Channel officials.

105.7 Now has moved to 100.3 FM and now goes by “KISS-FM.”

As KISS-FM, 100.3 now plays current Top 40 music such as Katy Perry, Macklemore, Rihanna, Imagine Dragons and Justin Timberlake.

Clear Channel Media owns both stations and made the announcement Thursday.

Keith Allen, program director for 105.7 The Buzz and 100.3 KISS-FM, said they are excited to bring alternative music back to the Triad with 105.7 The Buzz.

“There has been a strong demand for this style of music for quite some time and we are excited to fill that need,” Allen said.

Clear Channel Greensboro owns and operates WMAG-FM, WMKS-FM, WPTI-FM, WTQR-FM and WVBZ-FM and is part of Clear Channel Media and Entertainment.

    its all about money. that’s what screwed up radio to begin with. clear channel and others bought up all the mom and pop stations where dj”s could actually play what they wanted instead of a college boy program dictator.

    The problem with Rock 92 is the DJ ‘s won’t shut up in the morning. 100.3 was Ok and I was actually considering dropping my XM radio subscription. Thanks to the new format, XM has just had another renewal. The new 100.3 and 105.7 just won’t get it for me. I ma’am now enjoying Octane and Ozzy’s Boneyard.

    100.3 was my main station. Programmed in 105.7 and got totally different station. Please bring back the old buzz.

    I live in Holland, MI now & loved 100.3 th Buzz so much I wud listen to it on Iheart Radio because I can’t find any good metal stations up here. Now, I have to resort to cd’s. Please change it back, a lot of us metal heads are traumatized by having to listen to the likes of Katy Perry & Justin Beiber! DISGUSTING!

    they should change it back nothing was said about changing the actual music & now i only listen to my phone ipod or cds, not exactly what i like to do when driving & i want to listen to new rock. bring it back or take it off air we have enough radio stations with that type of music. rock is hard enough to find without it being removed from the radio to begin with. now the only alternative we have is rock 92 but it doesnt really play the new music.

    You have sealed your own fate by playing commercials that make fun of Klove. If tolerance is an issue, you are going against the grain. Please back off of the cutting commercials, b/c it is hurting your broadcast. Even my 10 yr. old has taken notice….not cool guys!
