WSOM 600 goes news talk

Recent news of 1390 WNIO flipping from nostalgia to sports talk would not have been such a big deal since listeners of the “Great American Songbook” would still have WSOM 600 to go to. Well, that is not the case as WSOM has also flipped from nostalgia to talk and is now known as “News Talk 600 WSOM”. This now leaves Youngstown without any nostalgia based formats and appears to have a mostly syndicated lineup including Michael Savage and Glenn Beck. The market with stations in both Ohio and Pennsylvania already has WKBN 570, WPIC 790, WGFT 1330 and WASN 1500. Update: WSOM was playing standards overnight Monday into Tuesday thought this will probably change once they find an overnight talk show to fill the overnight hours. Don’t forget that nearby WKTX 830 does play some standards mixed in with their ethnic programming. Could they or someone else fill the void? Stay tuned.
