WMZK Returns To Classic Rock

Just eight months after flipping from Classic Rock “Z104” to Hot AC “Magic 104.1“, 104.1 WMZK Merril, WI has reverted to its former name and format. As Northpine.com reported it is a little unclear who is currently operating the station. The original format change to Hot AC came when Michael Enfelt’s Radio One Communications agreed to acquire WMZK and sister Classic Country “Patriot 730” WJMT Merril//99.1 W256AG Wausau from Barracuda Broadcasting/Quicksilver Broadcasting for $595,000 and immediate Time Brokerage Agreement. The sale never closed, however as the stations were ordered into bankruptcy receivership in late November.

Wausau Finds Its Magic

Radio One Communications has flipped Classic Rock “Z104” WMZK Merril, WI/99.1 W256AG Wausau to Hot AC “Magic 104.1“. The move took place on Tuesday, April 15 at 3:00pm. Positioning itself as “All Hit Radio”, the station gives Wausau a Hot AC for the first time since then 96.7 WLJY flipped to CHR “Hot 96.7” in December 2011. Northpine.com reports that WMZK is operated by Radio One Communications via Time Brokerage Agreement as it awaits approval for its purchase of the station from Quicksilver Broadcasting.
