While Pittsburgh is welcoming back CHR “B-94” to the dial, Ashtabula, Ohio has lost their Top 40 outlet. “102 ZOO” (WZOO) is no more, The station is playing a weekend full of songs with “Magic” in the name for the new “Magic Oldies 102.5” with hits from the 60’s & 70’s. They will officially go live with the format on Monday @ 6am. There was rumors that “Media One” would flip one of their new stations in the Ashtabula market. This could create some competition for sister station “Star 97.1” WREO. Unfortunately for Erie residents without an FM Oldies station, The new station will not come in because of “Z-102.3” being right next to 102.5. Maybe the folks at Media One could look into using their Erie 96.7 Translator CP for coverage in Erie. Meanwhile, Top 40 fans can tune into “Star 104” or possibly one of the Cleveland or Youngstown stations.
