94.7 The WAVE is now Smooth R&B

CBS Radio's 94.7 The Wave in Los Angeles has transitioned from a smooth jazz outlet to an Urban Adult Contemporary station. For many years during the hey day of the smooth jazz format, "lite" R&B titles from the likes of Sade, Luther Vandross, and others were always a part of the song lists as it was with The Wave. But now The Wave has just about dropped all smooth jazz songs from their playlists and has incorporated an Urban AC format called "Smooth R&B."

The station will compete for listeners with 102.3 KJLH, which is owned by Stevie Wonder and Clear Channel owned Hot 92.3 Old School. 94.7 KTWV The WAVE became a smooth jazz station in 1987. Also during it's run as a smooth jazz station, it once featured Brian McKnight as it's morning host.
