HOT AC is a fun, adult friendly format with a focus on music and lifestyle. All of the songs are familiar hits from the 90s through today. The target demographic is adults age 18 – 49, with a tight target of women age 30 – 38, the exact audience advertisers want to reach. The music is predominantly up-tempo and always easy to sing along with. Listeners take Hot AC to the workplace, to work out and everywhere they go on the weekends! Westwood One’s Hot AC personalities are entertaining, upbeat and youthful (not juvenile). This contemporary format sits right in between AC and CHR, the sweet spot for mass market appeal!
