Radio Format Changes: February 2006 Archives

Format changes: week of Feb 1, 2006



* On Monday January 30th, NextMedia dropped the dance format from WTBT-FM 100.5 Carrollton/Saginaw and moved to a News-Talk format as WSGW-FM- not to be confused with WSGW AM 790. There were several other related personnel changes within the NextMedia cluster because of this move: Morning host and program director Jerry O'Donnell has left Adult Contemporary WGER-FM 106.3 and O'Donell's co-host, Michelle Langley, loses morning duties but stays on for middays at WGER. The WTBT morning show featuring Big and Burns has moved to WGER for mornings with WTBT program director Tommy Frank getting the PD role at WGER as well. WGER afternoon drive host Bill Anders moves to WSGW.

WSGW adds FM station, Saginaw News (1/31)

* WOAP AM 1080 Owosso has dropped all of its secular music (adult standards and oldies) and is now offering a full-time religious format with Catholic based programming from owner Michigan Catholic Radio.


* WUBU-FM 106.3 South Bend, IN has changed its format from Smooth Jazz back to Adult Urban Contemporary, the same format it switched to Smooth Jazz from in 2003, once again as Mix 106.
