November 15, 2013 at 10:58 AM (PT)
GREAT PLAINS MEDIA Sports WZIM/BLOOMINGTON, IL has flipped to AC "NEW MAGIC 99.5 FM," will include music from the 1980s, 1990s, 2000s and today. The JOHN TESH Radio Show will anchor the morning drive and local talent will be on the rest of the day until 7p.
"We’re playing all of the popular songs that from the '80s, '90s and today that you feel comfortable listening to at work or with your kids in the car," GM GREG COOK said.
"When Classic Hits and the old MAGIC left the market within a week of each other a couple of years ago it left a hole for AC in this market," OM JOSH ROBERTS said, “We felt 99.5’s frequency was optimal to reach audiences who enjoy this type of music.”
Market Manager MEGAN ZIMMER added, "The New MAGIC 99.5 is the perfect complement to our other two stations here BLOOMINGTON/NORMAL. Offering Country, News/Talk and now AC to both our clients and our listeners is the perfect combination.”
The FOX Sports format "THE TICKET" went off the air on Wed at 10a and the station played rock music until FRIDAY at noon.
