Indiana RadioWatch: May 19, 1999
Rhythmic CHR/WJFX (107.9fm, New Haven) PD Michelle Price is gone due to philosophical differences. While a PD search goes on, MD Weasel takes PD responsibilities. Price's morning slot is filled by midday man Geno Burgess. Burgess'
replacement is Jordan Kline who last did mornings at CHR/WBHT in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania.
Modern/AC WYSR (94.1fm, Roanoke) mid-day gal Susan Harley exits. Also, Promotions Director Tony Malone exits. That leaves mornings and PM drive as the only shifts with a DJ ... Middays and nights are automated, but not voicetracked.
Rhythmic CHR/WCKZ (102.3fm, Auburn) night time guy Jo Valentine takes MD duties.
Rock/WXKE (103.9fm, Fort Wayne) takes a more active rock approach. The heritage rock station won't change its moniker ("Rock 104") and we've heard of no other changes with the station.
AC/WAJI (95.1fm, Fort Wayne) promotions goddess Holly Raney adds morning show production duties.
Phil Britain exits as PD of AC/WNSN (101.5fm, South Bend). Named Interim PD is MD Jim Roberts, who also does mid-days.
70's/WNDU(AM) (1490am) and CHR/WNDV-FM (92.9fm, both South Bend) move into new offices & studios on Cleveland Road in South Bend. While the move goes on, WNDV-FM is being simulcast on the AM side.
Bob & Tom add KNJY in Spokane, Washington.
Religious/WAPC (91.9fm, Terre Haute) applies for a CP for 6000 watts.
WPCS translator W216BB (91.3fm, Williamsport) hits the air.
With the demise of Mutual, WCSI/WINN/WKKG affiliate with CBS.
Don Griffin becomes VP/GM at the Connoisseur cluster in Evansville (WGBF-A&F, WTRI, WYNG). He arrives from Dayton, Ohio where he also worked for Connoisseur.
WPCS-translator-to-be W211AW (90.1fm, Evansville) files an application to change to 88.7fm.
Country/WRAY (98.1fm, Princeton) adds Nashville Nights.
