Seattle Market Spotlight posted on November 24th, 2014
We are very excited to welcome Entercom/Seattle to the MusicMaster family this month! As this is his “home” market, Aaron Taylor had the opportunity to spend time on site with the programming staff to devise plans for their MMWIN and Wide Orbit integration. Entercom stations in the Seattle market include legendary rocker KISW-FM (with over 40 years in the format) nationally recognized alternative KNDD-FM, country KKWF-FM “The Wolf”, “playing the best of today’s rhythm and old school throwbacks” KHTP-FM “Hot 103.7, and AAA KHTP-HD2 “The Mountain”.

Aaron also stopped by KMPS-FM CBS/Seattle to catch up and visit with longtime MusicMaster client and friend, Program Director Ed Hill. Ed has been using MusicMaster since the 80’s, when it was called MusicScan. KMPS will celebrate 40 years in the country format in Seattle in 2015. The station was also Aaron’s on air home from 1995-2007. Thanks, Ed for being a valued A-Ware client for so many years!

Classical KING-FM/Seattle has been in the classical format since 1948, and is noted as being one of the first stations in world to stream their format on the internet. KING-FM uses MusicMaster Enterprise as their master database, which is linked to six scheduling databases for their terrestrial and streaming programming.
