WHYY/Rockford Flips To "Bob-FM"; Wake-Up Chaos Ensues
August 1, 2006 at 12:56 PM (PT)
MAVERICK MEDIA Classic Rocker WYHY/ROCKFORD, IL flipped to "95-3 BOB FM" at 9a this morning, and with the change comes word that BOB & TOM -- who had been serving as the WYHY wake-up team -- moves to crosshall sister Rock WXRX (104.9 THE X) for that station's morning slot.
Now, with BOB & TOM coming into the fold at THE X, what'll become of "THE STONE & DOUBLE T SHOW," the station's current wake-up dudes? Well, seems STONE and DOUBLE T are playing coy on the station's website, telling listeners that they were "shocked and disapponted ... when we were informed that our show would be no more. Our Attorney RENE HERNANDEZ is now working to settle things with MAVERICK MEDIA."
A bit of gamesmanship seems to be afoot, as Market Manager J CHAPMAN was quoted in a release stating, "We are currently finalizing details with JIM STONE and TERRY TUREN about a new place on the X for their show and their ‘unique’ brand of humor." So, stayed tuned.
