Radio Station Format Definition: Hot AC
"Hot Adult Contemporary" stations play a mix of current popular hits,
such as those found on Top-40 stations, and unobtrusive pop and
light-rock hits from the past thirty years, such as those usually
played on regular adult contemporary stations.
"Modern Adult Contemporary" stations take this concept one step further
in that they play a mix of older pop hits with current "Alternative Rock" or
"Modern Rock" hits.
Hot AC stations often identify themselves as a "Mix" station as they play a mix of new and
old hit music.
Both Hot AC and Modern AC stations cater to a younger audience then
regular adult contemporary stations.
