Original Report 9/3: Alpha Media is shuffling some of its properties in Biloxi.

96.7 WUJM Gulfport has dropped its Sports “96.7 The Champ” format and is stunting with a robotic countdown clock to Friday, September 5 at 5:00pm. The Sports format remains on previous simulcasters 1490 WXBD and 1640 WTNI Biloxi.

A recent domain registration for 967TheBull.com was recently transferred to the servers of a Gulfport based web design firm. A move to Country would place WUJM in competition with Dowdy Broadcasting’s market leading “Kicker 108” 107.9 WZKX Bay St. Louis and Clear Channel’s “K99” 99.1 WKNN-FM Pascagoula.

WUJM held a mere 0.8 share in the Spring 2014 Nielsen Audio ratings.
