OMW hears that Clear Channel Ashtabula hot AC WZOO/102.5 "102 ZOO" has flipped to a top 40 format.
We don't know exactly when it happened, but we believe it was within the past week or so. The 102 ZOO website is now headed "Your Hit Music Station", and WZOO keeps its name and call letters.
The station put up an online "survey", and that page now reads:
We have received tons of e-mails from you about changing the sound of 102 ZOO. So after begging and crying to management, paying off our creditors, checking with our attorneys, again checking with our attorneys, and finally checking with our attorneys....we have made the change!
However we still want to hear from you! What is your take on the New 102 ZOO?
We're unaware of any staff changes as a result of the format change.
"102 ZOO" has been running Dallas-based syndicated morning host Kidd Kraddick for some time now, and we didn't know WZOO's lineup before this week beyond that.
Oh, and we chuckled at the invitation on the 102 ZOO website to "Work at the ZOO". We thought all radio stations were zoos...
