Kansas City’s KCJK-FM has been rebranded 105.1 The X and will play what it is calling the “Rockternative” format — a combination of Active and Alternative Rock. Artists featured on 105.1 The X include Tool, Shinedown, The Black Keys, Disturbed, The White Stripes, Motley Crue, Foo Fighters, Pearl Jam and other artists across generations.
In addition, Cassiday Proctor has been brought in from Hubbard to host afternoon drive. Proctor joins Cumulus Kansas City from St. Louis where she was afternoon personality for 106.5 The Arch/WARH-FM.
Donna Baker, Regional Vice President/Market Manager, Cumulus Kansas City, said: “Kansas City’s Rock Alternative is exactly what Rock fans are asking for. With the perfect companion, our #1 station KCFX/101 The Fox Classic Rock, Cumulus Kansas City reaches the most listeners and provides our advertiser partners with unmatched radio and digital solutions that create results.”
Mike O’Reilly, Program Director for KCJK, added, “A new day has dawned for Rock radio in Kansas City. Let the next evolution of Rock/Alternative begin.”
