MYRTLE BEACH, SC, September 15, 2016 – Alpha Media, Myrtle Beach announced that Star 92.1 (WMYB-FM) has become Energy 92.1 as of this morning at 9:00am.
Energy 92.1 will feature today’s top hits and recent top 10 recordings. The majority of music will be from the last few years and include artists such as; Justin Bieber, Drake, Sia, Justin Timberlake, Twenty One Pilots, The Chainsmokers, Rihanna, and Ariana Grande. To generate buzz, the station played Christmas music 24/7 for three days prior to the switch.
Alpha Media Market Manager, Josh Gertzog commented on the announcement, “We are excited about Energy 92.1! It gives Alpha Media, Myrtle Beach a chance to operate one of the true heritage formats in the United States – Top 40. Grand Strand listeners didn’t really have a choice with this format, and some stations haven’t made changes in decades. It was time to freshen up the market….and to bring new ‘energy’ to the radio dial!”
“By making the move to Energy 92.1, we will be giving the Grand Strand hands down the most exciting radio station on the dial. The fun won’t just be on the radio with this but also on the streets…we’ll be everywhere,” remarked Program Director, BJ Kinard.
