Legitimate talk in the mornings, drivetime and a little bit in the 
evenings.  Surrounded by brokered quack bull crap.  A little bit of Carib 
music on the weekends (all gospel & religion on Sundays).

Oh yes.  WOWO in its day (pre 24 hour WLIB) was a wonderful station for 
overnight programming.  Not anymore.  WLIB at least was local with live 

Unfortunately there have been lots of budget cuts at WLIB.  Something I 
don't quite understand because sister station WBLS-FM 107.5 is doing great 
(with the only non-local shift being morning drive).

Something makes me smell mis-management at WLIB.....the station HAS
potential....unfortunately, like what happened with WEVD 1050, the drive
build wasn't there.  It was just easier to sell to a bird-dropping (ESPN)  
and take the cash and run.
