WXBT-A/Columbia, SC Drops Most Local Shows, Adds More Fox Sports Radio
October 28, 2014 at 6:48 PM (PT)
ALL ACCESS hears of changes in the works at iHEARTMEDIA's COLUMBIA, SC cluster.
The first wave of changes involve hosts TEDDY HEFFNER, RICK SANFORD, CAREY RICH, and MATT BARBER exiting Sports WXBT-A (560 THE TEAM), with the afternoon show with JONATHAN REYNOLDS and BILL GUNTER the only remaining local weekday show. FOX SPORTS RADIO is now airing 6a-3p (ET) in the formerly local dayparts with the exception of REYNOLDS and GUNTER's show, and the station will rebrand under the network's name.
Could this be a precursor to more? Could more changes in the coming month involve two formats shifting frequencies (and one changing bands)? Is Talk headed back to its old home? A request by ALL ACCESS for comment from local management has yet to elicit a response. Stay tuned...
