WCFB-FM 94.5 Program Director, Michael Saunders has told All Access; 
"We tweaked, Star has been a ratings and community leader in Central Florida. Today is such an exciting day for Star 94.5 and our team.  This evolution will help continue Star's dominance in the Urban and overall market.  We're staying true to who we are while updating the format."
