Cadillac loses FM oldies station; gains sports




After a weekend of stunting with the University of Michigan's fight song The Victors, MacDonald-Garber flipped WKAD FM 93.7 Cadillac from oldies to sports on Monday (Jan. 2) morning using FOX Sports Radio as '93.7 The Ticket'.

The company's WMBN AM 1430 Petoskey also dropped its standards/oldies format and participated in the stunting and is simulcasting with WKAD to increase the coverage area for the format in the region.

The new stations' lineup features a local morning show hosted by Tom Devitt featuring contributions from local sports figures including former TV 9&10 sportscaster Vic McCarty, former Michigan Wolverine and Detroit Lion Jon Jansen, and star amateur golfer Joey Garber. 93.7 The Ticket will also offer popular syndicated programs from Dan Patrick and Jim Rome.

The Ticket will also carry play-by-play sports on the local, state, and national level, Detroit Red Wings hockey, and Michigan Wolverines football and basketball.

The move gives northern Michigan it's first all-sports format on a traditional (analog) FM signal.
