Seattle's The Mountain 103.7 has gone off the air. From Seattlepi.com:
In a statement Friday, managers at Seattle’s home for warm, folky rock announced the station will be changing its format and operating under a different name starting immediately. The Entercom-owned station will continue to broadcast online at TheMountainSeattle.com and on HD radio at 103.7 HD2. But it won’t be available on FM any longer.
As for 103.7 FM's broadcast future:
Entercom said the new format would be aimed at appealing to women. “Our new Hot (adult contemporary), with its rhythmic format, will be everything our competitors are not, giving Seattle women a new radio choice,” Entercom spokesman Jack Hutchison said in a statement. Hutchison said the station will “reach Seattle’s modern women” who have “moved beyond the 18-year-old mindset.” The station is expected to play new songs as well as tracks from the past two decades.
I'm sold. I'll report back on the femme-y format after I spend some time soaking in it. In the meantime, please enjoy some woman-powered adult contemporary with a rhythmic format from the past two decades (that I will love forever).
