As I predicted, "Free FM" was a massive failure, and I found this exciting news on Wikipedia:
Return of WXRK and K-Rock (2007-)On May 24, 2007, the Free FM format in New York
was canceled by CBS Radio and the station returned to its rock format as
K-Rock. On 4:57 pm that day, the station's general manager apologized to
listeners for taking K-Rock away. Minutes later at 5pm, the station returned to
the air as K-Rock, playing alternative rock from the 90s and 2000s along with
heavy classic rock. The first song played, keeping with the theme of the station
conveying their apology for taking away K-Rock in the first place, was "All
Apologies" by Nirvana.
The station is expected to revert to its previous call
letters, WXRK. Simultaneously, the current WXRK (92.3 K-Rock in Cleveland
Heights, also owned by CBS Radio) is expected to receive the calls WKRI.
New York needs a rock station, and now it's back!
