WZON Flips To Oldies
Stephen King’s (yes that one) 620 WZON Bangor ME has dropped its Liberal Talk “The Pulse” format for Oldies “Z62“.
The move marks a return to the branding the station used in its Top 40 and Rock eras in the 1970s and 80s. The new format will focus on hits of the 60s and 70s, just as WZON has been running on its “Z62 Throwback Weekends”.
Local morning host Don Cookson will move to sister Classic Rock 100.3WKIT-FM for middays, while the afternoon show “Downtown with Rich Kimball” remains in place from 4-6pm as will the WABI-TV newscast simulcasts from 430-6am and 6-630pm. Out with the change are the syndicated Stephanie Miller and Thom Hartmann shows in daytime and Leslie Marshall, Devils Advocates and Clark Howard at night.
