Kankakee Valley Broadcasting's Soft AC/WYMR (98.3fm, Culver) flips to all holiday music.

This morning, Federated Media's WTRC-FM (95.3fm, Niles, Michigan) adds the Classic Rock format of WAOR to an HD2 signal. WAOR was a longtime classic rock station on 95.3fm. In 2010, 95.3fm became the N/T WTRC-FM, and the WAOR format and call letters moved to Talking Stick Communications' 95.7fm, Nappanee frequency. Talking Stick sold the 95.7fm frequency in 2014.

Jim Mackey joins Federated Media's Country/WBYT (100.7fm, Elkhart) in mornings, alongside Deb Miles. Mr. Mackey last hosted mornings (and APD/MD) at WFYR-FM in Peoria, Illinois.


In mid-2013, Lori Wilson joined LIN Media at what was then their CBS affiliate WISH-TV (Channel 8, Indianapolis). Ms. Wilson arrived in the capital city from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania's WCAU-TV. In 2015, WISH-TV lost their CBS affiliation to Tribune Broadcasting's WTTV-TV (Channel 4, Bloomington). On Friday, Ms. Wilson will anchor her last 5pm, 6pm and 11pm newscasts, and then exit WISH-TV for Atlanta, Georgia. There, Ms. Wilson will join WSB-TV in Atlanta, Georgia as a weekend evening anchor in January 2017.

Metropolitan Indianapolis Public Broadcasting's N-T/WFYI-FM (90.1fm, Indianapolis) adds Andy Klotz as Director of Marketing and Promotions. Before joining WFYI, he worked for Angie's List (Media Relations Manager) and enjoyed a lengthy tenure in PR with the Indiana State Fair.


DLC Media's recent $25,000 purchase of translator CP W241BW will be on 99.3fm, licensed to Lawrenceville, Illinois with new call letters W257DW. DLC Media will use the translator for its recently purchased WAKO (910am, Lawrenceville, Illinois).
