Farewell The Vulcan, 105.5 FM goes “legacy”

1055-logoThis morning folks expecting to hear Lex & Terry as they were getting ready for work on 105.5 The Vulcan were surprised to instead be listening to the Steve and Leah Morning Show being simulcast from WERC 960 AM.

The change is not a temporary one as the station’s owner, ClearChannel Communications, posted this press release on the new website for 105.5 FM this morning. This marks the most recent change in the history of the frequency. It had most recently been a gospel station, consistently ranking as one of the top 10 stations in the market for almost three years until its format was changed in December 2006.

Sweet music for some local NPR fans

The station has announced that due to the Classical Public Radio Network‘s planned closure before the end of the year, they will be introducing three new shows from NPR to our local programming schedule.

The three new shows, The Diane Rehm Show, Here and Now, and Talk of the Nation.will begin broadcasting locally on Monday, March 31.

The radio station’s website has additional information about the changes being made, coincidentally during their spring pledge drive.
