WCKG holds Chicago hostage: Day 11
Phil Rosenthal is reporting in tomorrow’s edition of the Chicago Tribune that WCKG and CBS Radio officials have confirmation of Steve Dahl moving to WJMK (Jack FM) beginning on November 5.
Rumors have surfaced over the last few weeks over the fate of WCKG and the following moves pretty much confirms that there will be a format flip very soon:
– Steve Dahl moving to WJMK.
– The Chicago Bulls moving their games back to WMVP.
– An informerical hosted by a financial adviser on the station said it was his “second-to-last show on WCKG.”
– WCKG registering domain names such as 1059wmet.com and 1035theblaze.com, based on former rock stations WMET and WWBZ (The Blaze).
– In the Rosenthal article, mentions of possibly flipping WCKG to a Movin’-type format like Fresh FM (upbeat music targeted to women 25-54), or a Spanish-language format.
So which format will it be? Spanish-language? Or Fresh? Or something else? For all these answers and more, tune in next time for As the WCKG Turns!
