We’ve previously discussed the rumored changes coming to CBS FM Talker 105.9 WCKG in Chicago. Unlike the previous domains, CBS Radio itself has registered a pair of domains related to past rock stations in the market:
What both stations had in common was their primary competitor: 97.9 The Loop. In its present incarnation, WLUP is the market’s Classic Rock station and shares the bulk of the Rock audience with its Emmis sister Alternative WKQX “Q101“.
We’re not sure what to make of these registrations. Could be a red herring or a hint of a future Rock format at WCKG much like its former Free-FM brethren in New York and Philadelphia.
