The Radio Page News as of Wednesday, January 24th, 2000:

-Susquehanna Radio launched their new Top 40/Mainstream outlet WWWQ-FM/ATLANTA (Hot Hits Q100)on Tuesday January 23rd. It was a move in signal from Anniston,AL and was formerly called "Alambama 100 Country", and is currently using sister station 99X's backup tower on top of the Westin hotel. They've kicked off with a "Hot Hits and a Hundred Grand" contest. Ed Lambert, formerly of KISS-FM in Dallas, has jumped aboard Q100. Jo Jo Morales (formerly of Z100/NEW YORK) has jumped on for afternoons, former Y100/MIAMI personality Suzy Tavares is on Q100 at night. Tracy St. George is on board for middays. Q100 is the fourth CHR in the Atlanta market, with the legendary Star 94 (which has a very Hot AC lean to it) CHR/Pop-Rhythmic WBTS 95.5 The Beat, and the bad signal-ridden CHR/Rhythmic WLDA Wild 96.7. Maybe this will be the right-down-the-middle CHR that they need in Atlanta...

-Rick Dees, KIIS-FM morning personality, has snagged its biggest affiliate to date. Z104/WASHINGTON has jumped aboard the Dees ship to air it in the morning. Most of it will be voice-tracked, but portions of the show will be live from the West Coast. Dees replaces Billy Bush and Janet Elliot, who was fired along with several front office workers as a budget procedure. Bush, a cousin of President Dubya, said that he "resigned" and wants to go into television. But, Z104 has said Dees is temporary, someone from Z100/NEW YORK could be taking a trip down I-95 south.
For right now, this blocks a Clear Channel CHR coming into D.C...

-Viacom has brought back Infinity with a $3.5 billion loan from a bank. Also, (non-related radio news), Viacom reportedly has finished their deal of acquiring BET Holdings. Robert Johnson will remain the head honcho at BET, reporting to Mel Karmazin, president of Viacom.
