CC Radio blows up WSMJ for Alternative “Channel 104.3”


Friday WSMJ, formerly Smooth Jazz, became Baltimore’s exclusive Rock Alternative station with the launch of ‘Channel 104.3’ featuring Elliot in the Morning. It will compete with Hearst’s WIYY-FM (98 Rock) and a bit with CBS Radio’s WHFS in that market, which plays Alternative music at night, with Talk during the days.

“The Rock/Alternative format is unique to the area and features some music that has not been played here for quite some time,” said Jeff Kapugi, OM/Washington DC-Baltimore. 

Elliot’s daily program is currently heard on Washington’s DC 101 and WRXL in Richmond, VA and will now be heard along the I-95 corridor from the Pennsylvania border to the VA/NC line.
