107.3 The Drive

Start-up rapidly becomes popular

Challenge

On January 3, 2017, 107.3 The Drive signed-on as a brand-new Classic Rock station in the shadow of Columbus, Ohio. Although the station would fill a void for the format in the local market. It was going to need superior execution due to a heritage competitor about 50 miles away.

Radio Consulting Services began as 107.3 The Drive’s consulting and programming partner in 2016. Radio Consulting Services created a strategic plan followed by online music research and through on-going support ensured execution and implementation. 107.3 The Drive quickly became an incredibly popular station in the market.
