Townaquare Flips Jack To Rock in Buffalo


92-9 Jack FM is now “Buffalo’s 92-9 WBUF, Everything That Rocks!” Townsquare made the flip Wednesday and will kick it off with 10,000 songs in a row.

The format will include bands such as AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, ZZ Top, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Ozzy Osbourne, Foo Fighters, and Metallica.

Mark Plimpton, Townsquare Buffalo Market President adds, “We expect Buffalo’s 92-9 WBUF, Everything That Rocks, to become a must-listen for anyone that wants to rock their way through the day. This station fills a hole in the marketplace and will expand our reach in the community.”

Kurt Johnson, Townsquare SVP Programming says, “Chris’ strong experience in Rock makes this a unique opportunity for a whole new experience for listeners in Buffalo. WBUF will become the go-to station for rock fans.”


  1. I liked Jack fm. The silly deadpan one-liners were a great break from standard, tired radio stupidity we are normally subjected to, and the mix was perfect.

    The new format is hokey, old fashioned and abrasive. And it’s off my dial now.

  2. The new music format will make listeners realize how lame “Jack” was and should fill a big need in local radio… Younger listeners such as those building rooms for first kids need to experience what good radio used to sound like…

  3. Jack fm has been on the air since I built my first child’s bedroom and was the soundtrack to our family in the car work and yard. In a time when enduring staples fail to stand the test of time (anymore), I wish they would’ve just tweaked the format instead of scraping it-
