Radio News for New York and Baltimore
I missed a major format change at 101.9 FM while I was gone, but I found out about it from my iPhone. This station changed from Alternative Rock to All News last summer, but it could not compete with the heritage news stations on WCBS and WINS. So yesterday they went back to alternative rocks. Some of the "experts" on the various radio message boards think that this is a temporary format and that station will become a news talk station like IQ 106.9 FM in Philadelphia owned by Merlin. We will have to wait and find out.
