First Listen: 94.7 The Globe

This past Friday, All Access reported that CBS Classic Rock WARW/Washington, DC was been relaunched with a World Class Rock approach as "94.7 The Globe". This follows the exit of WARW PD Max Dugan earlier in the week. The rest of the airstaff remains. A new Program Director has yet to be named.

Musically, the station resembles a AAA/Classic Rock hybrid - similar to that of sister station WZGC/Atlanta. CBS has promised that 94.7 The Globe will become "green-focused", utilizing renewable energy to power its signal; and will further take this green approach both on and off air, promoting ways for listeners to live an eco-friendly lifestyle.

Edison Media's Sean Ross - writing on his blog - asks "is the environment now a rock radio niche?" Sean
offers his thoughts and provides a peek at an hour of music here.
