We're told that the plan is to drop contemporary artists and go back to hits of the '70s and '80s to go after 102.9 WMGK's listeners. Labor Day is a typical time for radio shake-ups. The station has been struggling to find an identity and listeners since it fired its franchise talent, Kidd Chris, in May over a racist song performed by a guest in March.
WYSP boss Jim Loftus did not return a call yesterday. Making things more interesting is word that Opie & Anthony, fired from 'YSP in October, may return to the station. Their agent, Bob Eatman, said as much on O&A's XM Satellite Radio show yesterday, according to FMQB.com. Their return depends on the yet-to-be-completed Sirius/ XM Satellite Radio mergers. Eatman did not return our call yesterday afternoon.
