Grand Rapids' Rock WBFX 101.3 to reposition from 'The Fox' to 'The Brew'
On Friday, February 22nd at noon, 'The Fox' will give way to 'The Brew' on Clear Channel's WBFX-FM 101.3 Grand Rapids. The station will keep a Rock format, but make some adjustments to its on-air sound. A new on-air lineup will debut featuring a return to Grand Rapids for new morning host "Puddin" (6 - 10 a.m.) and Matt Walker middays (10 a.m. - 3 p.m.). Aly joins for afternoons (3 - 8 p.m.) with nights hosted by "B-Side", the only holdover from the previous staff.
