Excellent news!!!

The dummies who own Go 96.3 should've flipped to Adult Contemporary.

Minneapolis had three Urban stations (95.3, 102.5, and the 105s). All of 'em get crappy ratings, but 95.3 is the strongest of the trio. Frankly, this flip should've occurred the moment John Dickey was fired from Cumulus.

I liked the early days of Love 105 best, however a more today's based AC format will likely surface but I have read a possible flip to a soft based classic hits could happen too. Love was probably best thing on these signals, ratings wise. There was a big AC hole in the market for sure.

What made The cloud decide to put sports on the 105's I'll never know, I think near the end they only were at a 0.1 share. They sounded worst then The Ticket in Toledo Ohio, that's saying something.

A few weeks ago, I got to thinking that the Classic hip hop format was nearing it's expiration date. The Twin cities doesn't have the audience for that format.

Bear in mind the version of the format that aired in the Twin Cities wasn't even localized; the station was using a Westwood One feed.

I used to listen online all the time. It seemed to work well for those 3 signals. Good to see it back in some form.
