  1. I’m not surprised Radio One has made these changes. 100.3 is back to Urban AC, the Same format they had when they went on the air as WMOJ in 2006. How long will this last is anyone’s guess. 1230 now has a translator so a more wider appealing format should help them. Gospel is already covered by 1050AM which now has a translator on 103.1. 1320 WCVG is also Gospel.
