WBAP-AM/Dallas Gets An FM Simulcast
March 12, 2010: Citadel moved Oldies KPMZ/Dallas into stunt mode Friday afternoon, going first to Texas music and then to "Reagan Radio," and now the plan has been revealed: On Monday at 5 a.m., the former "Platinum 96.7" will become a simulcast of News/Talk clustermate WBAP-AM.
"With the largest reach of any AM signal in North Texas at 820 AM, WBAP will provide a full simulcast of its entire programming at 96.7 FM," WBAP President/GM Keri Korzeniewski said. "With crystal-clear FM fidelity, WBAP listeners now have a choice on how they listen to their favorite News/Talk station."
WBAP's lineup: WBAP Morning News with Hal Jay, Brian Estridge, Amy Chodroff, Steve Lamb, and Brad Barton; Mark Davis from 8:30-11 a.m.; Premiere Radio Networks' Rush Limbaugh from 11 a.m.-2 p.m.; Premiere's Sean Hannity from 2-5 p.m.; Citadel Media's Mark Levin from 5-8 p.m.; Talk Radio Network's Laura Ingraham from 8-11 pm.; Citadel Media's John Batchelor from 11 p.m.-midnight; and The Midnight Radio Show with Eric Harley and Gary McNamara in overnights.
WBAP OM Tyler Cox said, "WBAP made history in 1922 when it signed on the air. WBAP is making history again as it becomes the first News/Talk radio station in North Texas to offer its programming on both the AM and FM dial! Listeners searching for clear views of the issues have relied on WBAP 820 AM every day. Now, listeners searching for clear FM fidelity can also rely on WBAP 96.7 FM!"

All insidious radio talk shows that appeal to mindless lemmings are RUBBISH, whether left or right wing.
So the babbling boobs have cleverly and quietly replaced the most well done music programming in the Metroplex.
My prediction is a sudden, FLAMING DEATH for the tedious WBAP on FM!
WBAP belongs on AM, not FM. Get off.

Milk-toast oldies stations have never well in DFW.
Glad my favorite news/talk station is on FM!

This is so bizarre. Finally we get a good oldies station and it turns into a
Ronald Reagan station" then to newstalk radio show.
IT REALLY SUCKS!

This really sucks, Platinum 96.7 played the best music selsction, I sure hope another station convets to the 96.7 old format.

I was sad to see the great music go away. My kids, however, were served a real treat Saturday night to hear the voice of a great leader, President Ronoal Reagan. What a nice gift to hear a leader who loved this country so much.
