ATL’s New Morning Groove

WALR logoCox Media Group Urban AC WALR (Kiss 104.1)/Atlanta announced several major programming changes “that usher in a new era at Atlanta’s top R&B station,” according to the press release.

These changes involve some musical adjustments, along with two major drivetime moves — musically, expect “More of today’s R&B and Throwbacks, along with timeless music from the ’80s, ’90s and 2000s.”
More dramatically, current afternoon team Art Terrell and Roy Wood Jr. move to morning drive as hosts of the newly minted Morning Groove, replacing the syndicated Tom Joyner Morning Show. Terrell and Wood are joined by newsperson Condace Pressley. The new show will also include commentary, opinions and humor from Clark Howard, Corey “Zooman” Miller, Aaron Paxton Arnold and others. And finally, Sasha the Diva takes over afternoon drive to entertain and guide listeners through their ride home.

“The changes we’re making represent a new day dawning in Atlanta R&B music,” said Tony Kidd, VP of Programming for CMG Atlanta. “This new programming line-up reflects what Atlanta’s African-American listeners want most from their favorite R&B station.”
