Indiana RadioWatch: July 10, 2004
Tom Oakes exits as PD at Country/WBYT (100.7fm, Elkhart) for OM duties at the five New Northwest Broadcaster's stations in Billings, Montana (KGHL/KGHL-FM/KRSQ/KZRV/KNDZ). Replacing him at "B-100" is Clint Marsh who moves up to
Michiana from OM/PD duties at Standards/WMDH & Country/WMDH-FM (1550am, 102.5fm; both New Castle).
With Clint Marsh leaving as OM/PD of Standards/WMDH & Country/WMDH-FM (1550am, 102.5fm; both New Castle), Citadel names Jay Michaels as OM/PD. Michaels arrives from Fort Wayne's Country/WBTU (93.3fm, Kendallville).
Chris Green returns to the Hoosier State and Hot AC/WLBC (104.1fm, Muncie), doing nights there. He did overnights in 1999-2000.
Thursday's story on the Indiana RadioWatch blog (http://indianaradio.blogspot.com) read:
A format change brews at WGRL (93.9fm, Fishers) as they have been playing TV theme songs since Monday (5 July). A David Lindquist story in this morning's Indianapolis Star says that the station will go Contemporary Christian as
"The Song," however a search of domain names reveals a URL registered to Susquehanna Indianapolis that suggests the new "Jack" format may be the real winner. Which is the decoy and which is the truth? We'll find out tomorrow morning.
This morning, we posted a brief followup:
After five days of non-stop TV theme songs (appropriately ended with "WKRP in Cincinnati"), WGRL (93.9fm, Fishers) launches at 6:45am yesterday (9 July) as "93.9, The Song" with a contemporary Christian format.
MD/Afternoon guy Matt Luecking and midday guy Chad Edwards swap shifts at CHR/WMGI (100.7fm, Terre Haute), starting next week Monday (5 July).
As of midnight, 28 June, Classic Rock-Modern AC/WWWY (106.1fm, North Vernon) flips format to Rock under PD Scott Michaels. The airstaff lineup:
Mornings: Jimmy Foxx (5:30am - 10am)
Middays: Mike Sullivan (10am - 3pm)
Afternoons: Keith Hall ("Keith Maddox") (3pm - 7pm)
Nights: Rich Anthony (7pm - Midnight)
