On-Air Changes at WJIM-AM and WVFN




The week has begn with two programming changes at Citadel Lansing stations WJIM-AM (1240) and WVFN-AM (730).

First off, Dave Scott has exited the position of host for WJIM's "The Big Show", the morning program which is also distributed to 10 other radio stations across the state via the Michigan Talk Network. MTN, which was launched as the Michigan Talk Radio Network in January 2001, was purchased by Citadel last year. Scott, who founded the network, moved from Charlevoix to Lansing to continue his role as morning host from the WJIM studios when the purchase was announced. Mike Shiels, who recently joined MTN as the Big Show's producer, has been named as the program's new host. Shiels had worked as a producer for the late J.P. McCarthy's program at Detroit's WJR.

Also, the weekly sports program "Lansing Sports Rage", which aired on WVFN-AM 730, has ended its run after their contract with the station expired and was not renewed. The locally-produced program provided a focus on high school and college sports in the mid-Michigan area.

Details on the changes at Citadel-Lansing were reported in today's Lansing State Journal.
