Another "Free FM" bites the dust: CBS Radio’s Talk WKRK-FM "Free FM" in Detroit flipped to Sports at 3PM yesterday in a simulcast with sister Sports WXYT-AM. The stations are using the tagline "Detroit’s Sports Powerhouse, 97.1FM & 1270AM." WKRK’s Jeff Deminski and Bill move from afternoons to mornings, replacing Opie and Anthony on FM and ESPN Radio’s Mike & Mike on AM. Both FM and AM will drop network programming in the evenings and add local shows with Dennis Fithian and Pat Caputo.
WXYT’s New Weekday Schedule:
— DEMINSKI AND DOYLE (6:00-10:00AM) – Jeff Deminski & Bill Doyle
— THE BIG SHOW (10:00AM-2:00PM) – Scott Anderson & Doug Karsch
— THE SPORTS INFERNO (2:00-6:00PM) – Mike Valenti & Terry Foster
— THE BOOK ON SPORTS (6:00-10:00PM) – Pat Caputo
— Dennis Fithian (10:00PM-2:00AM)
CBS Radio also dumped talk on The Zone WTZN-FM Pittsburgh and is currently stunting with Christmas music. The new station will be revealed Friday, according to the website. Check it out – looks like CHR B-94 might be coming back to town: http://www.937thezone.com/
