Regent Communications WFNT AM 1470 Flint this week has dropped its longtime adult standards/oldies format in favor of talk as "Flint's News Talk". The move brings back the syndicated Bob and Tom show to the market - the duo was heard for a number of years on Regent rocker WWBN-FM 101.5 before being dropped in favor of the Grand Rapids based Free Beer & Hot Wings show which is syndicated out of Regent's WGRD-FM 97.9.
WFNT previously featured a news-talk format prior to switching to adult standards in the Spring of 2000.
With a 5,000 watt daytime / 1,000 watt nighttime signal from near Burton, WFNT covers the immediate Flint area well, but quickly runs into interference issues to the south of Flint because of co-channel WLQR AM 1470 in Toledo, OH.
