Barron Departs WMMQ

| | Comments (54)


Tim Barron has exited Citadel's Lansing Classic Rock outlet WMMQ-FM (94.9), after eight years as the station's morning co-host. Barron, along with co-host Debra Hart, joined WMMQ (then WVIC a.k.a. Buzz 95) in January 1997, following a successful morning run at crosstown Rocker WJXQ (Q106). Hart and morning show producer Keith Pelligrini remain with WMMQ, and are joined by a new co-host known as "The Beagle", formerly of the late WWDX (92.1 The Edge).

Barron's departure marks the latest in a number of personnel and programming changes which have taken place at Citadel's Lansing cluster since top management changed late last fall.


WQTX Receives Approval to Change Frequency and COL



The FCC has approved the petition of Mid-Michigan Radio Group (MMRG) to jump the frequency of WQTX-FM from 92.7 to 92.9 MHZ, and change the station's city of license from Charlotte to Grand Ledge. The move also involves a power increase and greater coverage area for the current Class A FM.

The petition was one of two actions filed by Charlotte radio stations to modify their COL's. Another petition, filed by Christian Broadcasting System LTD, seeks reassignment of WLCM-AM (1390) from Charlotte to Holt, along with addition of nighttime service. Both of these changes precipitated yet a third change - the reassignment of MMRG's WJXQ-FM (Q106) from Jackson to Charlotte, in order to comply with the Commission's requirement that at least one station remain licensed to Charlotte.

WQTX currently offers a Sports Talk format, which is simulcast with sister station WTXQ-FM (92.1), licensed to St. Johns.
