Beginning on January 2, Ramsey will move to Clear Channel News/Talk 1510 WLAC. In the move, Ramsey will lose his live clearance in the Nashville market as the program will air on delay from 5-8pm.
Cromwell owner Bud Walters told the Nashville Business Journal, “We have been friends for more than 20 years, and while we enjoyed this partnership from a personal standpoint, we both realize that from a business perspective our brands would be better served if we return to our respective formats.”
The move will enable WPRT to once again focus fully on Sports Talk, where its 1.0 share trailed Cumulus’ “104.5 The Zone” WGFX’s 6.1 in the October PPM monthlies. It could also help WLAC against WWTN, where it trails 4.4 to 2.3.
