    Does this mean a gradual switch back to a more mainstream a/c sound to the main signal of WLIT? Hmmmm.

      WKSC HD-2 has been running “The Breeze” with Soft AC since before WLIT changed to it’s current format. That’s a brand park, to keep Entercom from using it.

      In the case of WLIT HD-2, it’s a filler until they find WLIT HD-2 (or WKSC HD-2) a new format.
