“O-Rock” 105.9 WOCL Orlando Becomes “Sunny 105.9”

Following the departure of Howard Stern to Sirius in December 2005, WOCL’s Modern Rock format fell on hard times. Drew Garabo and Savannah were brought in following their departures from crosstown FM Talker WTKS to host mornings, but the format floundered behind 101.1 WJRR for the young male audience it desired. Finally on Friday, January 4, 2008 at 10:00am the station dropped Modern Rock and began stunting with Bill Drake’s “History of Rock and Roll” until the following Thursday, January 10. That day at 12:40pm, the station began a year-by-year montage similar to the one used by sister WCBS-FM New York the previous summer, which led up to the launch at 1:05pm and 9 seconds of “Sunny 105.9 – Orlando’s Greatest Hits”. http://formatchange.com/a...

93.9 WWFT Indianapolis Becomes “Warm 93.9”

On November 17, 2007 93.9 WWFT Fishers/Indianapolis dropped its 11-month old News/Talk format in favor of Christmas Music as “The Christmas Channel”. This move, in retaliation for Emmis’ announced move of 1070 WIBC to 93.1 FM on December 26, gave Indianapolis its 2nd all-Christmas format. On December 26, WWFT stunt changed to an announcement of a new format launching on January 2, 2008 at 9:39am. The new format, “Warm 93.9” which debuted with The Police “Every Breathe You Take”, was clearly designed to take shares away from Emmis’ WYXB “B105.7”. Cumulus’ has similar “Warm” branded AC’s that it acquired from Susquehanna along with WWFT in Cincinnati and York, PA. http://formatchange.com/audio/294.mp3
