Dallas-Fort Worth legendary Modern Rock/Alternate Rock station KDGE 1021 The Edge is ending it's 27 year (11 of those on 94.5 FM and 16 at 102.1 FM) run as The Alternate Rock station for the DFW Metroplex area. IHeartMedia pulled the plug on the iconic format due to a huge decline in the ratings in which The Edge was losing listeners to sister stations Rocker KEGL 97.1 The Eagle (which ironically had the same thing happen to it in 2004 when IHeartMedia was still known as Clear Channel pulled the Plug on the rock format to flip it to Sunny 97.1 which failed and then a year later it flipped to a Spanish format which also flopped and then KEGL was flip back to the Eagle in late 2007.) The Edge signed on at 94.5 FM on June 30, 1989 as a new home for a new sound of Rock in the DFW area in which Wendy Naylor and George Gimarc created the legendary Modern Rock/Alternate Rock station. the station lasted 11 years at 94.5 when on November 9, 2000, it moved to 102.1 FM (in which Clear Channel acquired AMFM Radio and as part of a deal, the formal, the 102.1 FM location, Edge branding, the jocks and the KDGE calls was acquired by Clear Channel while the previous format, call letters, branding, jocks and 94.5 FM location were acquired by Radio One) and brought back some form of Rock to the 102.1 FM location after 2 years of no rock music in which 102.1 was home to legendary now defunct rocker Q102 ended on August 27, 1998 which flipped from Rock to Jamming Oldies Magic 102.1 on August 31, 1998. the station ended it's 27 year run as a rocker and 16 year run at 102.1 FM on Wednesday November 16, 2016 by ending it with the final 2 songs being "All My Life" by the Foo Fighters, "Out of My League" by Fitz & the Tantrums and then starting stunting with a continuous loop of the song "Closing Time" by Semisonic. in which between when the song ends and restarts, bumpers were telling people to tune in to sister station 97.1 The Eagle for the Sound of The Edge (aka Rock) and stay tune at 5 PM on Thursday (November 17, 2016) for the new sound of 102.1. it's a sad day for DFW rock radio as the Edge is gone, but the memories will live on though the Edge listeners that listen to the station for the last 3 decades. stories about the Edge's format change from Radio Insight, D Magazine, Fort Worth Star Telegram and NBC 5 (KXAS TV): http://www.nbcdfw.com/entertainment/the-scene/1021-The-Edge-Is-No-More-Radio-Station-Sends-Listeners-to-The-Eagle--401578586.html http://www.star-telegram.com/living/article115204818.html http://www.dmagazine.com/frontburner/2016/11/kdge-is-no-longer-your-new-music-alternative/ https://radioinsight.com/blog/headlines/109180/kdge-dallas-drops-alternative-after-27-years/ as someone from North Texas that grew up listening to The Edge, i'm gonna miss the station and i thank The Edge for the memories, RIP 94.5/102.1 The Edge June 30, 1989-November 16, 2016.
