CBS Launches Adult Hits "95.7 The Spot" Houston

Posted: 30 Dec 2016 10:35 AM PST

95.7 KKHH flipped to Adult Hits 95.7 The Spot at 12:30pm. The Spot is
positioning itself as Your Place. Your Music. Your Way focusing on pop hits
from the 70s through 2000s. Core artists listed include Madonna, Boston,
Maroon 5, Bon Jovi, Duran Duran, Def Leppard, Eurythmics, Prince, Journey,
and George Michael.

The new format also fills the vacant Classic Hits void in the Houston
market and positions the station between iHeartMedias market leading AC
Sunny 99.1 KODA and Cox Media Classic Rock 107.5/106.9 The Eagle KGLK/KHPT.

The very 80s heavy first hour of the Spot consisted of:

Prince Lets Go Crazy

Guns N Roses Sweet Child Of Mine

Madonna Like A Prayer

Green Day When I Come Around

Wham Wake Me Up Before You Go Go

Journey Dont Stop Believin

Duran Duran Hungry Like The Wolf

Black Crowes Hard To Handle

Don Henley All She Wants To Do Is Dance

Wild Cherry Play That Funky Music

Michael Jackson Billie Jean

Real Life Send Me An Angel

Bruce Springsteen Hungry Heart

Simple Minds Dont You (Forget About Me)

In an exciting move for Houston area music fans, CBS RADIO’s 95.7 today
unveils a fresh new format beginning promptly at 12:30 pm. 95.7 The Spot is
Houston’s newest adult hits radio station programmed for listeners who love
a variety of hits from the 70’s, 80’s, 90’s and 2000’s. The station is
designed for listeners who need a break from the everyday stresses of life
and features the most popular artists of the time, including Michael
Jackson, Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, Madonna, U2, Prince and many others.

We worked exhaustively to understand what Houston listeners were missing in
the market from their local radio stations,” said Sarah Frazier, SVP/Market
Manager, CBS RADIO Houston. “Listeners told us they wanted their own spot
to hear their favorite music hits, a spot to relax and energize at work and
a spot to feel comfy and complete. This is your Spot, Houston.”

Listen to The Spot on-air, online at and on the

Original Report 10:30am: CBS CHR Hot 95.7 KKHH Houston will launch its new
identity at 12:30pm today.

while all references to the Dave, Mahoney, and DK morning show has been
wiped from sister Hot AC Mix 96.5 KHMX.

The station began stunting at 10:20 with a robotic clock counting down from
2957. A message on KKHHs website simply states Were making some changes to
95-7. Tune In at 12:30pm to find out what.
