Cumulus takes control of New York's 94.7 and goes Country

January 17, 2013

Cumulus Media completed their purchase and have taken control of WFME, now WRXP, 94.7 in the New York market on January 11, 2013. While preparing the station for the new format, Cumulus began with a simulcast of WPLJ 95.5 and after a few days switched to a "wheel of formats" loop of several different types of music before settling on country music as 94.7 Nash FM on January 21. This marks the first time Country music has been on the air in New York City in more than 15 years.
