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.
