One of our readers e-mailed me with a question about WNTS (1590am, Beech Grove) when it aired a religious format. If you worked there during that time, or know someone who did, please drop me an e-mail.


After eight years, Nexstar's CBS affiliate WANE-TV (Channel 15, Fort Wayne) overnight reporter and weekend anchor Rod Hissong exits after this weekend's local newscasts. This is the fourth on-air departure from WANE-TV in the last month.


Our condolences on the very sad news from Cumulus' Country/WWKI (100.5fm, Kokomo): On Friday morning, the daughter (and only child) of midday host JR Dennis died in a car accident. Preslie Dennis was 17 years old. Ms. Dennis recently graduated from high school and began serving our country with the Indiana Air National Guard. Friends and family may file by the casket on Wednesday June 27 at Abundant Life Church, 1025 County Rd E 400 S, Kokomo, IN 46902 from Noon until 1:00pm with a funeral at 1:00pm. Here's the complete obituary.


Doug Zook exits as host of Anderson Live on Woof Boom Broadcasting's News-Talk/WHBU (1240am, Anderson) and FM translator: W279CL (103.7fm, Anderson). Weekend host Steve Guinn now hosts Anderson Live (heard weekdays between 7:00am and 9:00am) on "Talk Radio WHBU 1240 AM and 103.7 FM."


Townsquare Media and Henson Media agree to a deal which means Townsquare will dismiss their 107.9fm, Evansville translator application with the FCC. Townsquare's 107.9fm translator would have been a simulcast of their N-T/WGBF (1280am, Evansville). Henson Media also applied for a 250 watt 107.9fm translator licensed to Henderson, Kentucky as a simulcast of Henson's Classic Hits/WSON (860am, Henderson, Kentucky). Since September 2011, WSON has also been on FM through their translator W243CU (96.5fm, Henderson, Kentucky).

That's all for this issue. Thank you for your continued support.
