GREATER MEDIA Sports WMGC (DETROIT SPORTS 105.1)/DETROIT is exiting the format and will air a temporary simulcast of sister Classic Rock WCSX's HD2 DETROIT Oldies format until a new format is officially unveiled. WMGC flipped to Sports in AUGUST 2013.
The station abruptly pulled the plug 10 minutes into the evening "REWIND" show at 6:10p TODAY (6/29), airing a stunt loop of songs and sound clips featuring the word "wonderful," then joining WCSX-HD2's Oldies stream with liners teasing the building of a new format.
“The change comes after much careful consideration of the direction of the station's format and overall ratings over the past three years,” said VP and Market Manager STEVE CHESSARE. “We would like to thank our dedicated listeners and the entire DETROIT SPORTS 105.1 staff for their many contributions to the station in the MOTOR CITY. They are true professionals and we are very grateful to them."
