September 23, 2008 at 5:26 AM (PT)
Adult Hits WSHY-A/LAFAYETTE, IN will drop its simulcast of ARTISTIC MEDIA PARTNERS sister Adult Hits WBPE (BOB FM 95.3) to flip to Talk, returning the Talk format to the local dial (and to the 1410 AM slot, which was a Talk station as WAZY-A in the '90s).
The LAFAYETTE JOURNAL AND COURIER reports that "within a few days" the station will carry PREMIERE's RUSH LIMBAUGH and ABC's SEAN HANNITY along with FOX NEWS RADIO, SALEM's BILL BENNETT, WESTWOOD ONE's DENNIS MILLER, PREMIERE's "COAST TO COAST AM WITH GEORGE NOORY," and a local show 3-4p. Weekends will feature Adult Standards music, PREMIERE's "GLENN BECK WEEKEND" and FOX SPORTS RADIO.
The paper reports that the station is being sold by ARTISTIC MEDIA PARTNERS to a group headed by station Pres./GM JEFF HOLMES.
