What Happened to K-ROCK?

K-Rock is changing more than just their morning show when Howard Stern moves to Satellite radio this winter.

According to trade magazine FMQB, WXRK 92.3 FM in New York (which has been known as "K-Rock" since 1985) is changing its call letters to WFNY next week (January 1, 2006), and will move to "a predominately Talk format"; the station will now be known as "92.3 Free-FM."

If you want to listen to the kind of rock music that you are used to hearing on K-Rock, you can go online and listen to http://www.krock2.com, which of course is difficult to do in your car. I suspect that when the FM station known as KROCK officially goes away, the online station will drop the "2" and simply be called "K-Rock", but who knows.

That's too bad, now the station sounds horrible. I haven't listened to it for a couple months, and I turned it on today, and they had a doctor in the studio. It was so much fun when they had dirty rocker djs, and now I just don't know - it lost its cool indefinately. Making it a "talk" station just doesn't work. I guess the corporate america wants us all to invest in saterlite radio if want to have any discent radio stations.

Pure bullsh!t that we lost 92.3 K Rock. We didn't even have the radio station back for 3 years and we lost it. No damn rock when I wanna listen to it, gotta hear that faggot ass music. NY no longer has a main rockstation, I mean we got Q 104.3 but they play old music which I dont mind. For fcuksakes I wanna hear some damn Tool, or Metallica but can I now? No longer have O&A Show which was funny to hear as your getting ready for work or school. Fcuking sucks big time. Now we got these damn faggots stations its like another Z100 sh!t or Hot 97 like I wanna hear that sh!t, if I wanted to I would simply listen to those stations but I don't I listened to 92.3 K Rock but now its a fcuking useless ass station. Playing rap and sh!t, c'mon man what about the people who listened to the station like I did. They got enough f@ggot station now we got even More.
