Muskegon Chronicle:

A Muskegon radio station has gone off the air. WMHG (1600 AM) went silent Dec. 31, according to a Grand Rapids official of Clear Channel Communications, the national radio conglomerate that operates 11 stations in West Michigan, including four in Muskegon. Bart Brandmiller, Clear Channel's regional director of sales for West Michigan, said WMHG went off the air because a Local Marketing Agreement, or LMA, had expired. WMHG is owned by Atlanta, Ga.-based Cumulus Media but was operated by Clear Channel through the LMA. WMHG was an automated, satellite-feed station. Its music format, from the ABC Radio Network, broadcast a middle-of-the-road oldies format that featured hits of such artists as Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett.

Until the loss of WMHG, Clear Channel had been operating five local stations out of its studio on Green Street in Muskegon Heights... AM radio station WMHG, 'Timeless Favorites,' silenced
