106.7 The Beat

iHeartMedia Columbus, Ohio has flipped Alternative WCGX X106.7 for Urban, launching 106.7 The Beat, Columbus’ Real Hip Hop and R&B, aimed directly at Radio One’s WCKX Power 107.5. “106.7 The Beat is ready to take the ‘Hip Hop’s Heavyweight Title’ in Columbus,” said Doc Wynter, SVP of Urban Programming for iHeartMedia.  The Beat will be anchored by the Premiere-syndicated The Breakfast Club, which features DJ Envy, Angela Yee and Charlamagne Tha God and originates live from iHeartMedia Urban WWPR (Power 105.1)/NewYork. The Breakfast Club will make its Columbus debut on October 6th. iHeartMedia Columbus VP of Programming Michael McCoy says he’s looking to add two local positions for The Beat, ASAP — an APD/afternoon personality and a night jock. Interested/qualified candidates are urged to send resumes and airchecks for these EOE positions to McCoy’s attention at [email protected].
