Grand Rapids Press:

A new 24-hour news-and-talk radio format hits the local airwaves today, with a West Michigan television news anchor hosting a weekday afternoon show. The former WBBL Radio signal at 1340 AM now has the call letters WJRW, with owner Citadel Broadcasting Corp. recasting the former sports station. The new format took effect at 5:30 a.m. Tuesday, replacing WBBL's sports programming. That got moved in late May to the 50,000-watt signal at 107.3 FM, the former home of rock station WKLQ. Among WJRW's hosts is Lee VanAmeyde, an anchor for WZZM-TV, Channel 13. He is hosting a show 3-4 p.m. Monday through Friday focused on politics and local issues, said Matt Hanlon, regional president for Citadel Broadcasting. WJRW's format will feature local issues-based programming, he said... Citadel Broadcasting launches 24-hour news-and-talk format at 1340 AM on WJRW Radio (Tue, 8/18)



Oh great. VanAmeyde on the radio too. Citadel brings in another rightwing political wingnut to misdirect the gullible public. As if Rich Michaels on Lansing's WMMQ wasn't enough.
