"New Century Media Debuts "QUICK 96" in Seattle
(Seattle, Washington) … In a radical departure from mainstream radio formats, New Century Media has created a totally new approach to traditional broadcasting. Wednesday, May 29, 2002 at 6pm, 95-7 The Beat (KBTB-FM) changes its name and format to "QUICK 96" ...only the Best Parts of your Favorite Songs ". "QUICK 96" was designed to address the short attention span of today's busy music fan," said New Century Media President and General Manager, Michele Grosenick. "'QUICK 96' will feature an active library of more than 11,000 songs. 'QUICK 96' is truly the most variety of music ever heard on Seattle Radio. Each day you'll hear the Best Country, Top 40, Rock and Adult Hits and lots more of them," Grosenick continued.
"'QUICK 96' was born from a brainstorming meeting with Michele, our research company con******t and myself," stated Program Director, Bob Case. "We noticed that our con******t's attention span was about seven seconds and the idea of this new format just grew from that!"
An additional outcome of the research study showed that Seattle Radio Listeners wanted to know each song title and artist. "QUICK 96" has gone to the extent of numbering every song so the listener will simply need to logon to www.Quick96.com
to look up the song number for each title and artist. "QUICK 96" will play an astonishing 426 songs each and every hour."'QUICK 96' will surely be a favorite to busy Seattleites that need lots of music in a flash," said Grosenick.
