B98.5 radio station Carrollton
WSB-FM (98.5 FM, "B98.5") is an Atlanta radio station. Along with several other Atlanta radio stations, WSB-FM is owned by Cox Enterprises' Cox Media Group subsidiary, and is the group's flagship FM station. It is the only Atlanta FM radio station to continue to share a broadcast callsign with local TV and AM radio stations (WSB AM and WSB-TV), and one of the few such triopolies (under the same ownership) left in the entire U.S..
WSB-FM airs a "light rock" or Adult Contemporary format. Since 2012 a majority of WSB-FM's playlist comes from the 2000s, along with music from the 1980s and 1990s. WSB-FM broadcast all-80s weekends from 2001-2003 and again from 2009-2012, and all-70s weekends during the mid-1990s. The split weekend format ended during January 2012, meaning the light rock format now airs 24/7. During the holiday seasons from 2004 to 2011, the station played all Christmas music from the day before Thanksgiving to Christmas Day. As of 2012, the station did not all-Christmas, mixing Christmas songs in with the regular format as the station did prior to 2004. For the first time ever in 2012, WSB-FM broadcast their normal AC format with mixed-in Christmas songs on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day (the station would play nothing but Christmas music on those days even prior to 2004). This is due to polls in 2012 that showed a majority of WSB's listeners rejected the idea of all-Christmas music. WSB
Peachtree Street is the main street of Atlanta. Beginning at Five Points in Downtown Atlanta, it runs north through Midtown; upon entering Buckhead, its name changes to Peachtree Road. Much of the city's historic and noteworthy architecture is located along the street, and it is often used for annual parades (such as the Atlanta St. Patrick's Day Parade and Atlanta Christmas Parade), as well as one-time parades celebrating events such as the 100th anniversary of Coca-Cola in 1988 and the Atlanta Braves 1995 World Series victory.
Atlanta grew on a site occupied by the Creek people, which included a major village called Standing Peachtree. There is some dispute over whether the Creek settlement was called Standing Peachtree or Standing Pitch Tree, corrupted later to peach. Pine trees, common to the area, were also known as pitch trees due to their sap. Broadcasting
Steve McCoy is an American radio personality best known for his show with Vikki Locke in Atlanta, Georgia for over 18 years. The duo was twice nominated for the Marconi Award.]citation needed[ McCoy came to Atlanta in 1981 to work at legendary top 40 WZGC FM (Z-93). One of his most memorable moments at this time at Z93, was his recording of The Falcon Fight Song with lyrics including: "Asked the Falcons what they wanted to be; Super Bowl champs from Suwanee; They want to be famous, show off their rings; So Rankin can buy a lot of stupid things." He remained there until 1987, when he jumped to new top 40 station Power 99. This is where he began working with Locke, who was doing the news at the time. In 1989, Steve left Atlanta, after a nationwide search by Ron Chapman found Steve to be his one and only replacement for his long-time morning show at KVIL FM in Dallas, Texas. One year into the plan, however, Clarke Brown, the man who launched Star 94 (Atlanta) talked Steve into coming back to the town he loved to take over the morning show. He said he'd only come back if they'd get Vikki to come on board. Steve returned, and he and Vikki helped the struggling WSTR FM (Star 94) morning show (and eventually the whole station) receive higher Arbitron ratings. Steve and Vikki's 18 year run on Star 94 was only bested by Rhubarb Jones' 23 year run on country station WYAY Y106.7/Eagle 106.7 both WYAY, now All News 106.7.
In the fall of 2006, Vikki was diagnosed with a blood clot in her arm and began a year and a half long process of treatment. Just before Christmas 2007 she had her final MRI on her arm, and the treatment had worked. The blood clot had broken apart,and she was clear of danger. Steve and Vikki are once again together for the morning show on B98.5 FM since July 1, 2008. Phil Terrana
