Emmis Communications Corporation will roll out multicast channels in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Indianapolis markets in the coming months.
In New York, WQHT-FM, Hot 97, will be broadcasting "Old School Hip Hop"on its second signal; WRKS-FM, Kiss FM, will be airing Gospel; and WQCD-FM, CD 101.9, will be airing "Chill." Also known as ambient or lounge music, Chill has roots in pop, world music, smooth jazz, and electronica; artists include Zero 7, Moby, and Groove Armada, said Emmis.
In Los Angeles, KPWR-FM, Power 106, will broadcast "Power Dos" (a bilingual and musically extended version of Power 106) while KZLA-FM will air Adult Alternative.
In Chicago, WKQX-FM, Q101, will air "Punk/Young Alternative" while WLUP-FM, The Loop, will air "Loop Loud" (extreme hard rock).
In Indianapolis listeners of high-definition radio will enjoy Dance music on WNOU-FM, Radio Now; Disco on WYXB-FM, B 105.7; and Americana, a country format with more roots and less mainstream country, on WLHK-FM, Hank FM.
On-air dates will be spread throughout 2006, with WQHT's Old School Hip Hop on the air already. Los Angeles' Power 106 and KZLA should be up with their second signals by the middle of February 2006.
