July 29, 2009 at 4:41 PM (PT)
CUMULUS Sports WNFN (ESPN 106.7 THE FAN)/NASHVILLE is exiting the crowded Sports competition in the market and began stunting at midnight (7/29) for a new format to come later in the week.
The station is airing construction sounds along with a liner saying, "The sound you are hearing is the construction of a brand new radio station. Target date for completion: TOMORROW, JULY 30th, at 1:06p."
ALL ACCESS hears from market sources that sales staffers are telling advertisers that it will be a Contemporary Christian format, with the moniker "PRAISE 106" ... truth, or smoke?
