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.

Steve and Leah take to the airwaves

Tune in to WERC 960 AM this morning before 11 a.m. and you can say you were listening the first day that Steve Shannon and Leah Brandon were on the air together in The Magic City.

The radio veterans started their run on the heritage AM station at 7 a.m. The Birmingham Business Journal posted this story on their site last month to announce their pending arrival. Of course, you could just check out the station’s website for the hosts’ bios (and the stream of the radio broadcast) or read the press release that Paul sent over to us late last month.
