At the end of February, we wrote about several changes at Country/WQHK-FM (105.1fm, Huntertown), including two on-air personalities exiting. Now, there's an updated on-air lineup for "K-105":

Mornings: Josh and Kaysie (5am until 9am)
Middays: Kylie Havens (9am until 2pm)
Afternoons: Dan Austin (2pm until 7pm)
Nights: David (7pm until Midnight)

This morning, Josh and Kaysie debuted on "K-105." Mr. Michaels and Ms. Chase last did mornings together in Richmond for Brewer Broadcasting's Country/WQLK (96.1fm, Richmond). With this move, "K-105" becomes the only live and local Country Fort Wayne radio station (Monday through Friday, 5a-Midnight).

Where Are They Now? Former Oasis Radio Group/Fort Wayne Production Director and on-air personality Chris Cruise will move to morning co-host at WDZH-FM ("98.7 AMP Radio") in Detroit. "The Morning Show with Cruise and Julia" will debut a week from today (Monday June 8) from 6am until 10am.


Anderson University's Religious/WQME (98.7fm, Anderson) is "engaged in the sale process with EMF" but no sales documents have yet been filed with the FCC. Ryon Kaopuiki, VP/Enrollment and Marketing at Anderson University tells IRW, "In the meantime [EMF] have taken over daily operations of the station."


Kyle Inskeep, a reporter for Tribune Broadcasting's FOX affiliate WXIN-TV (Channel 59, Indianapolis) and CBS affiliate WTTV-TV (Channel 4, Bloomington)/WTTK-TV (Channel 29, Kokomo) recently exits after three years. Before Mr. Inskeep joined "FOX 59" and "CBS4," he worked at Nexstar NBC affiliate WTWO-TV (Channel 2, Terre Haute). The Indianapolis Business Journal reports today that Mr. Inskeep will join WKRC-TV in Cincinnati, to co-anchor their early evening (4pm and 5:30pm) newscasts) and co-anchor the 10pm newscast on sister WSTR-TV.


Wagon Wheel Broadcasting's Country/WSCH (99.3fm, Aurora) PD Robb Reel exits, and joins Cherry Creek Media in Missoula, Montana. There, he programs and hosts afternoons at KGGL ("93-3 Eagle Country").

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