CBS Rock WYSP/PHILADELPHIA has revamped its format towards a hard-edged Classic Rock playlist with the slogan "94YSP, THE ROCK YOU GREW UP WITH FROM THE '70S, '80S, AND '90S." The station is adding more '70s and '80s cuts, and the PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER's MICHAEL KLEIN reports that WYSP is adding more cuts from artists like AC/DC, DEF LEPPARD, GUNS 'N' ROSES, OZZY OSBOURNE, PINK FLOYD, VAN HALEN and AEROSMITH, while retaining artists like NIRVANA and PEARL JAM.
The on-air lineup remains in place for now, although VP/GM JIM LOFTUS told KLEIN that the station is still looking for a morning show to fill the gap left by KIDD CHRIS' firing on MAY 18th
