Houston radio station to play non-stop Beyoncé songs

CRAZY IN LOVE: A Houston radio station will play non-stop Beyoncé tracks

A STRUGGLING radio station in Houston, Texas, has abandoned its news service to play Beyoncé's songs non-stop.

News92 FM officially closed down on Tuesday (Oct 70), letting 47 staff members go after a long financial struggle, only to come back to life with around-the-clock, ad-free dedication to the star.

Listeners will no longer hear news reports, traffic updates and weather forecasts reported The Independent.

The station, which is based in the singer's hometown, described the new format as a "difficult decision" and claimed the changes are because of "sustained poor ratings performance and significant financial losses over the past three years".

"Unfortunately, the market hasn't shown a sustainable appetite for news radio," a statement read.
