     "Entercom couldn’t be more excited to launch the New 96.3 R&B here in Austin. For years, the African-American community has been underserved by radio in this market, and 96.3 R&B will super serve this vital and growing community," said Alan Kirshbom, Entercom-Austin VP/Market Manager. "We are launching 96.3 R&B to compete and win. Steve Harvey in the morning immediately gives our station credibility with listeners. His mass appeal will resonate not only with the African-American Community but bring in a wider audience over time."
