WLIT is expected to flip to Christmas music sometime in the next few weeks. Last year, WLIT flipped to the Jingle Bells format on November 2.
Other formats that were considered for WCKG included Spanish and Active Rock.
Aside from Steve Dahl, who is moving to WJMK-FM as that station’s new morning personality, the entire on-air staff was let go, as well as the syndicated Opie & Anthony show. WCKG is playing classic clips around-the-clock of Dahl until he signs off WCKG for good Friday night.
