After just six months as Conservative Talk, Smash Hit Media’s 98.3 WWHP Farmer City/Bloomington IL has flipped to “Classic Rock 98.3“.
WWHP had dropped its previous Classic Hits programming for a Talk lineup led by former “Cities 92.9” WRPW morning host Ian Bayne in mornings and Breitbart editor Mike Flynn in afternoons in November 2015. Bayne released a vague statement to his InsideBloomington.com stating:
“We currently have staff writers handling news as it develops and we will be welcoming and encouraging members of the community to participate in the process of developing news stories should that need present itself.”
“I am not prepared to discuss my departure from Newstalk 98.3 except to say that it is not due to what is being generally speculated. I hope that my listeners will stay in touch by visiting InsideBloomington.com.”
WWHP had also been carrying the syndicated Dana Loesch, Joe Pags, and Lars Larson as part of their programming.
