On Wednesday night, Clear Channel flipped Active Rock WKLS (Project 9-6-1)/Atlanta to CHR, rebranding the station as "Power 96.1." The station will carry Elvis Duran and Ryan Seacrest's syndicated programming, starting next Tuesday, September 4. Duran moves from sister CC Rhythmic station WWLG (WiLD 105.7 &96.7) to the new Power 96.1. The station's complete programming lineup will be announced soon.

Seacrest himself (an Atlanta native) made a surprise appearance at the Enrique IglesiasJennifer Lopez concert last night, personally announcing the launch of Power 96.1. "It’s exciting to help launch this new radio station, which I’m confident will definitely entertain Atlanta listeners," said Seacrest. "I am thrilled to be back on the air daily in my hometown."

"Our goal with the launch of the new Power 96.1 is to bring Atlanta a new and exciting hit music station with entertaining personalities, unique artist interaction and a fun connection to everything that’s going on in Atlanta," said Tom McConnell, CCM+E EVP of Operations for Major Markets East. 

The new station can be found at www.Power961.com and features a flashy video, starring Katy Perry, Usher, One Direction and others talking up Power 96.1:

With the flip, the airstaff of the former Project 9-6-1 has exited.
