Across the hall in the CBS Radio compound, classic rock WNCX/98.5 is airing an “Hispanic CHR” format on its HD2 channel.

We’ve talked about this before, as CBS announced its HD2 formats some time ago, but the formats on 92.3 and 98.5 are officially up and running. Well, for those who’ve bought an HD Radio receiver, which we do not have here in the palatial OMW compound…

The CBS Radio HD2 stations join Clear Channel’s two HD2 outlets as options for Cleveland HD Radio listeners – the “new hit music” format on the digital side of top 40 WAKS/96.5, and the “Lake” AAA format on hot AC WMVX/106.5’s digital signal…
