On April 1, the air staff at Rhythmic/WJFX (107.9fm, New Haven) began an attempt at setting the world's record for the longest continuous radio broadcast by an individual. Each DJ gets a shot at establishing the record. When all the jocks have had their chance, we'll report the results.

CHR/WMEE (97.3fm, Fort Wayne) welcomes new morning show co-host Lana Conroy. Conroy last did mornings at Country/WLJE (105.5fm, Valparaiso).

Alternative/WEJE (96.3fm, Churubusco), PD Kyle Guderian now hosts "The Living Room", featuring local bands. This is a replacement for "The New Music Show" which was hosted by then-PD Weasel.

ModAC/WYSR (94.1fm, Roanoke) night guy Clark Kent departs. New PD Matt Bruce was only in town a few days before the Kent departure. Bruce was most recently in the Cleveland area. Bruce and station receptionist Melissa now do mornings at "Star 94.1"; the show being called "The Breakfast Flakes".


Country/WBYT (100.7fm, Elkhart) MD Lisa Kosty adds APD duties while PD Dave Steele departs for WKJN in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.


At Talk/WLTH (1370am, Gary), their sale to Marion Williams doesn't go through. WLTH Radio, Inc. retains ownership.


Congrats to Alternative/WGRE (91.5fm, Greencastle) as they celebrate their 50th birthday on April 25. According to faculty advisor Jeff McCall, the station was founded in 1949 as the first 10 watt education radio station licensed by the FCC.


Classic Rock/WNAP (93.1fm, Indianapolis) fills the PD chair with former WRCX, Chicago APD/MD Jo Robinson.

Rock/WFBQ syndicated morning duo Bob & Tom are out at KVRQ (92.5fm, Merced, California) due to a format change.


Clarification: The application for New Whiteland would be on WTTS's tower, not WFCI (which has its own tower near the WTTS tower).

That's it for this issue! See you in two weeks...
