103.3 KLOU becomes “My 103.3”

With the “Oldies” branding becoming taboo due to the aging of the target audience, broadcasters have looked for new ways to position the format. In St. Louis, when Clear Channel brought on market legend Smash for mornings at KLOU they used the opportunity to reposition the market’s longtime oldies station as programmed by the listeners. The station brought on Bob Costas as the imaging voice as well. http://formatchange.com/audio/283.mp3

“104.1 The Mall” WMLL flips from 80’s to Standards “Red 104.1” WRDA

Summary by Mike Batchelor. WMLL flipped to a format of “New Standards” on 1/8/04, after a week of stunting with a “Wheel of Music” playing cuts from many different formats. Previous to the “wheel,” 104.1 stunted with Christmas music throughout the holiday season starting on November 1, 2003. WMLL “The Mall,” started in 2000 as an All 80s format. Gradually, WMLL morphed into a Hot AC format playing 80s & 90s pop, with no currents, with Steve & DC in the Morning. The station languished near the bottom of the ratings heap for its entire three year existence, despite having a high dollar, marquee morning show that once dominated the market. http://formatchange.com/audio/14.mp3

CHR KSLZ “Z107.7” launches after KMJM moves to 104.9

That year Jacor Communications acquired Religious formatted 104.9 WCBW in nearby Columbia, Illinois. With 104.9’s signal stronger in the areas that an Urban format would succeed in, the company moved “Majic 108” to the 104.9 signal as “Majic 105” and launched a new CHR on the 107.7 signal that had better coverage of the market as a whole. Jacor brought in Jeff Kapugi, then Program Director of flagship CHR “93.3 FLZ” in Tampa as Program Director and began simulcasting the “MJ & BJ” Morning Show from ‘FLZ as well. The sign-on of KSLZ has since beco...
