“The L” 87.7 WLFM Quickly Fills Chicago’s Smooth Jazz Hole

87.7 The L WLFM WLFM-LP Smooth Jazz Chicago WNUA

On the heels of 95.5 WNUA flipping from Smooth Jazz to Spanish Hot AC, Chicago LPTV WLFM has picked up the format. The station, using the audio feed of TV Channel 6 on 87.7, was expected to become a simulcast of New York’s “Pulse 87”, however that deal fell apart.

WLFM will carry Broadcast Architecture’s Smooth Jazz Network with one change courtesy of WNUA’s flip. Ramsey Lewis, who was based at WNUA and let go as part of the format change, will be replaced by Brian Culbertson.
