Original Report 11/9: Entercom has dropped CHR on “Amp Radio 98.7” WDZH Detroit and is currently stunting with a broader than normal Christmas music format.
Currently branding as “The Rudolph Network at 98.7“, the station began stunting a little after 5:00. The move brings an end to the nine year old CHR format at the station. The flip took place hours after iHeartMedia AC 100.3 WNIC made its annual move to Christmas music this morning.
WDZH ranked sixteenth in the Detroit market with a 2.4 share in the October 2018 Nielsen Audio ratings. IHeartMedia’s crosstown CHR “Channel 95.5” WKQI was eighth with a 5.1.
No word yet on the status of the current WDZH airstaff.
