I was just contemplating what WKLB would do in the face of competition. Now we know. I wasn't thinking this would be the first thing.

WKLB has cancelled "Sunday Morning Country Oldies" effective immediately,
after just over 20 years on the air. The last show aired yesterday, hosts
Michael Burns and Stu Fink were told this afternoon that the show is over.
The reasons given was the flip of 101.7 to country as "The Bull" and Greater
Media's tweaking their on-air presentation to counter their new competition.
Having 4 hours of Oldies/Classic Country doesn't fit well with the rest of
the station. It's not known what will fill the 8AM-12Noon slot on Sundays.
Michael Burns remains the voice tracked overnight host on WMJX, while Stu
Fink has been let go. 

Disclaimer: Michael Burns is a close friend of mine, he is the one who gave
me this news just a while ago.
