98.7 Amp Radio launches in Detroit


As predicted, CBS Radio added its CHR “Amp” franchise to the Motor City today at 8:00AM to compete with top-rated CC Radio’s WKQI-FM in that market.  AMP Radio (WVMV-FM) can be heard on-air, online at www.987ampradio.com, and via a variety of mobile devices, including the iPhone, iPod Nano, Zune, and select Blackberries. This marks the second AMP radio station in the CBS Radio portfolio to launch this year, and the 12th CHR formatted radio station in the company.  Just seven months after its debut, KAMP-FM LA is the fastest growing radio station in the market and a top choice among Adults 18-34.

987ampradio.com offers new music videos, the ability to learn more about favorite artists, and gives access to the most up to date information about station events and appearances.  The station’s website will be the hub for everything music related, and posts on Twitter (twitter.com/987ampradio) and Facebook (facebook.com/987ampradio) will keep audiences informed and entertained.  

The smooth jazz format previously found on 98.7 will now be available on the station’s HD 2 multicast channel and streamed online at www.smoothjazzdetroit.com.
