The Lansing radio changes continue! Mid-Michigan Radio Group has ended the simulcast of Sports Talk outlets WTQX-FM (92.1) and WQTX-FM (92.7), by flipping the latter to a Smooth Jazz format. The former WQTX (now WJZL) recently received FCC approval to proceed with plans for a COL change to Grand Ledge and frequency change to 92.9, which will provide the station with substantially better coverage of the Lansing market. In the meantime, however, it appears that MMRG has decided to proceed with programming changes for 92.7 FM. WJZL is airing the Smooth Jazz format from Jones Satellite Networks.
Lansing Community College's WLNZ-FM (89.7) currently offers Jazz programming in the daytime. The last commercial Jazz outlet in Lansing was WXMX-FM (now WTXQ), which programmed the format from 1991 to 1993.
WTXQ continues with Sports Talk as "The Ticket".
