CBS Flipping Atlanta FM to All Sports


Another Music FM is flipping over to sports and the company that excels in sports programming is making the move. The announcement was made by Market Manager Rick Caffey to the Atlanta CBS staff on Tuesday. "Today I am pleased to announce that we will be launching a new station in the fall – Sports Radio 92.9FM."

And to help with that transition Caffey announced the hiring of Terry Foxx, the former PD at KDKA "The Fan in Pittsburgh. "We've had many conversations about the potential of Sports Radio 92.9 and his vision is exactly what we need to win in this market. Working with him will be inspiring and I'm confident you'll also be motivated by his work ethic and energetic personality."

Caffey says CBS is already working on a talent lineup, a new website and mobile apps. "But we have a lot more work to do between now and the station's debut. In the meantime, we remain focused on delivering a great music experience on "DAVE-FM" and will take care to ensure the transition goes smoothly. I can't thank the staff at "DAVE" enough for their contributions over the past eight years." The city of Atlanta has an NFL, NBA, NHL and Major League Baseball team. CBS Radio is also in the process of launching a national all-sports network that will launch in January.
