WPRO To Simulcast On WSKO-F

CITADEL is dropping the local Sports programming on its WSKO-A and WSKO-F (THE SCORE)/PROVIDENCE on TUESDAY, flipping the FM side to a simulcast of Talk WPRO-A (as "NEWS TALK 630 WPRO AND 99.7 FM) and the AM side to Oldies using ABC's "TRUE OLDIES," airing ESPN RADIO for the rest of the week and retaining ABC RADIO NETWORKS' DON IMUS in the morning with the Oldies format.
Out in the shuffle are the syndicated OPIE AND ANTHONY show (heard on the FM side of the SCORE simulcast), syndicated JIM ROME, middayers ANDY GRESH and SCOTT ZOLAK, and afternoon local host SCOTT CORDISCHI.
PD PAUL GIAMMARCO said, "With this milestone RHODE ISLAND broadcast event we expect that our listeners will find WPRO's unique blend of news and talk programming with more reliability in more places. Listeners will be able to hear the same great WPRO programs on both the AM and FM dials, whether at home, at work, in their cars or at the beaches."
