Clear Channel Shuffles Formats In Chillicothe Lance Venta | November 12, 2012 | Clear Channel has dismantled the Classic Hits simulcast at 1350 WCHI/92.7 W224BR Chillicothe OH. The AM side has become “Comedy 1350“, a move that was telegraphed in August by the station’s inclusion on a list of pending affiliates of the 24/7 Comedy Network. The 92.7 translator will now simulcast sister News/Talk 1490 WBEX, bringing its programming to FM for the first time.

They swapped dial positions with WKKJ-FM one year before the 93.3 FM signal was moved to the Columbus market. Incidentally, WODC is already in all-Christmas mode, a programming distinction they’ve held onto for years. And the other nearby classic hits AM – WCHO/1250 Washington Court House, long a sister/duplicator of WCHI – will flip to all-Christmas on Thanksgiving weekend.
