As of today, The Brew — a new classic rock radio station — has begun broadcasting at 101.3 FM and online at 1013thebrew.com.
The station will stick to the classics, playing bands like Aerosmith, Van Halen, AC/DC and Pearl Jam.
The Brew's name is inspired by Grand Rapids’ recent crowning as Beer City, U.S.A.
“With this being Beer Week and with Grand Rapids being Beer City, U.S.A., there is no better time to make this move,” said Tim Feagan, The Brew station manager. “There’s nothing better than having a brew with your favorite tunes!”
The Brew's new on-air lineup features a return to the market for morning host “Puddin,” on from 6-10 a.m., formerly of WSNX 104.5 FM, and for mid-day host Matt Walker, on from 10 a.m.-3 p.m., who worked at WSNX and WKLQ.
New to West Michigan and taking the afternoon slot from 3-8 p.m. is Aly, who most recently was with rock station WKLS in Atlanta, and nights will be hosted by “B-Side,” who is the only returnee from the previous WBFX 101.3 FM staff, which Clear Channel Radio previously ran as 101.3 The Fox Rocks.
The Brew will also be available via the free iHeartRadio mobile app.
Clear Channel Radio has 237 million monthly listeners throughout its stations in the U.S.
The division of CC Media Holdings owns 850 stations and reaches another 4,000 stations through its syndicated programs.
