94 WYSP flips to classic rock

94 WYSP flipped to classic rock this morning with the new slogan "The Rock You Grew Up With, From the 70s, 80s and 90s." Of course, we told you three weeks ago that such a move was in the works, and the station at the time did not return requests for comment about the format change. Frank Lario, Spike, Jennifer Reed, Gordon and Rick Allen will all remain. UPDATE: Andy Bloom, operations manager for 94 WYSP, just called to take object to the tag "classic rock." Bloom points out that Guns N' Roses, who kicked off the new format with "Paradise City" at 6 this morning, would hardly be considered classic rock and says the 'YSP is now "a new kind of radio station." Bloom expects the programming to be more similar to 93.3 WMMR and not 102.9 WMGK which plays more traditional classic rock.
