WSPZ-A/Birmingham Back To WJOX-A
February 11, 2010 at 5:08 AM (PT)
CITADEL Sports WSPZ-A (690 THE SPORTS ANIMAL)/BIRMINGHAM, which recently started mostly simulcasting sister Sports WJOX (JOX 94.5 FM) and moved local midday hosts JIM DUNAWAY and RYAN BROWN to WJOX to join incumbent LANCE TAYLOR on midday show "THE ROUNDTABLE," has flipped its call letters to WJOX-A as of FEBRUARY 8th. WSPZ was WJOX' original home, flipping calls to WSPZ in 2006 after the programming moved to FM.
The AM side now simulcasts WJOX from 6a to 6p ("THE OPENING DRIVE," "THE ROUNDTABLE," and PAUL FINEBAUM's regionally-syndicated show), while airing FOX SPORTS RADIO evenings and overnights; the FM airs ESPN RADIO in the evening and overnight slots as well as two extra hours of FINEBAUM 6-8p.
