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.
