SYRACUSE — Lite Rock 105.9 is out and “TV on the Radio” is in. WLTI is playing random classic TV theme songs, mostly from the 1970s and 1980s (at least during the half-hour or so your editor had the chance to listen). For now, the legal ID is still WLTI, though we were told last week the call letters would be changing as the station flips to talk sometime this week.
No word yet on the exact date or time when the stunting will end and the talk format will begin (or whether we’ll enjoy any additional “flavors” of stunting before it happens). But we did notice that visiting 1059thebigtalker.com no longer leads to a blank page; it’s now redirecting back to the Lite Rock 105.9 website.
By way of this week’s edition of Scott Fybush’s NorthEast Radio Watch, we’ve learned the overnight shift on The Big Talker will filled by Doug McIntyre’s Red Eye Radio, which is based at KABC in Los Angeles.
