All Access reports that MacDonald Garber has made some major programming changes at two of their stations in Northern Michigan. Country-formatted WLXV-FM (Cadillac) updated its imaging with new station voice Dan Kelly and a chance to win a virtual performance from recording artist Russell Dickerson. Market veteran/PD Deano remains in mornings, Mikey Zeroe adds middays, Stephen Tyler remains in afternoons with the syndicated “Shawn Parr Across America” added for nights. New weekend programming includes “Country 2020” and “The Big Time Saturday Night with Whitney Allen.”
Sister station WZTC-FM adds Mikey in the Morning, Lisa Knight in middays and John Kelly in afternoons, plus a custom night show from nationally-known talent Kid Kelly. Weekend programming includes the addition of the 1980s “Rick Dees Weekly Top 40,” “Throwback Nation Saturday Nights” and the “Retro Pop Reunion” Sunday nights.
Both stations will also add live and local weekend talent, including market vet Mike Misico.
