Cox Media Group (CMG) has launched a new Alternative format in the Orlando Market located at 107.3 FM WCFB HD2. This new station, which launched today at 12 noon will feature 10,000 songs commercial free. The target audience is adults 18-34 and features today’s hottest Alternative artists such as Imagine Dragons, Lorde, Bastille, Black Keys and more. X107.3 will be the seventh radio station for the Orlando cluster including WDBO-FM, WDBO-AM, WWKA, WMMO, WCFB and WPYO.

The Cox Media Group Programming Strategic Team lead by VP of Programming, Steve Smith, format leaders, Jeremy Rice and Keith Hastings, and CMG Orlando Operations Manager Stevie DeMann--started following the alternative listening habits and became creative minds behind this new product. They recognized a growing new artist roster and new unique alternative sound developing that the audience was embracing with an immediate passion.

“It’s time for an Alt Revolution!” said DeMann, Operations Director for WPYO, WWKA, X107.3. “X107.3 will be reaching an audience of alternative music fans that no Orlando radio station was serving until now. It will also super-serve the new alternative music fan by focusing on acts like Grammy champions Imagine Dragons and Lorde. The station is establishing a modern music library that delves deep into acts like Bastille, The Black Keys, Muse, Awolnation, and Artic Monkeys. It’s been many years since traditional alternative radio landed on America’s radar. X107.3 is ready to invade Orlando radios and mobile devices with the new X107.3 App.”

CMG VP and Market Manager Susan Larkin said, “The Orlando community is ready and it’s the perfect time to hear X107.3 Orlando’s New Alternative. We will have the opportunity to introduce new artists and music, along with those that are familiar, over- the- air and digitally to an audience that we expect to be responsive and engaged.”
