MERLIN MEDIA's WWWN/CHICAGO, the former Alternative WKQX (Q101), has formally flipped to News as "FM NEWS 101.1." The station went to the all-News format this afternoon after several weeks of stunting in a Hot AC format with news reports.
Dubbed "FM News 101.1," the station announced its launched its official flip on its FACEBOOK page. "We have finally launched the station," DAVE WILLIAMS wrote on the page. "The music disappeared this afternoon and the full-time news began. We have every expectation that it will never end."
The soft launch reveals a station not yet fully operational. Its website is still in the skeletal stage.
