Ann Arbor News:

WLBY, Ann Arbor's liberal talk radio station, will drop the Air America format Monday in favor of programming from the Business Talk Radio Network. The new Business Talk 1290 AM weekday lineup will feature the nationally-syndicated show "Doug Stephan's Good Day" from 4 to 9 a.m. That will be followed by local programming from Lucy Ann Lance from 9 a.m. to noon (effective March 23), the nationally-syndicated financial advice call-in program "The Dave Ramsey Show" from 2 to 5 p.m. and programming from national consumer advocate Clark Howard from 5 to 8 p.m. Lance's Saturday show, which began in January, will continue in the 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. time slot. Lou Perry's local call-in program will air from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday. General manager Scott Meier said the new format will serve a growing need for intelligent financial and business information in Washtenaw County. No change in call letters is planned. The station is owned by Cumulus Media, which also owns three other stations in this market: WQKL, WWWW and WTKA...
