Lansing's WXLA-AM 1180 and WQHH-FM 96.5, recently acquired by MacDonald Broadcasting, have undergone some noticeable programming changes since Monday (10/2).
The first change was a complete format flip for WXLA, as the station dropped its Urban Contemporary format in favor of Adult Standards. The station is currently airing ABC Radio's "Stardust" format, which is simultaneously airing on sister station WILS-AM 1320. Speculation is that this move may signal an upcoming format change for WILS, possibly to a Talk format, which would complement the local Chris Holman morning show.
Meanwhile, WQHH has added the syndicated Tom Joyner Morning Show, replacing local morning personalities Smokey Jones and Big Howard. The rest of the WQHH schedule remains intact.
MacDonald Broadcasting, in addition to WXLA, WQHH and WILS, also owns WHZZ-FM (101.7 Mike FM).
