by Chris Roush
The Atlanta Business Chronicle has reached an agreement to where it will provide content for two hourly business news segments on an Atlanta radio station.
Cumulus Media says its WYAY-FM will be converted to “All News 106.7” beginning in mid-May. As part of the switch, Cumulus will partner with the Atlanta Business Chronicle for business coverage, airing at :20 and :50 past the hour.
“Our partnership with The Atlanta Business Chronicle is consistent with our mission of bringing the most credible news and information to Atlantans 24 hour’s a day, 7 days a week,’ said John Dickey, Cumulus COO, in a statement. ‘ABC is the definitive business news brand in Atlanta and 106.7 will be the definitive radio news and information brand in Atlanta.”
The newspaper is owned by the Atlanta Business Chronicle.
“It’s exciting that intelligent Atlantans are finally getting a much needed all news format,” said Ed Baker, publisher of Atlanta Business Chronicle, in a statement. “We’re very excited to be a part of something new and different. Quality business reporting is more important than ever and this partnership will allow us to deliver something special to our community.”
