MyBridge/Nebraska is purchasing KMMK/Grand Island, NE (AM 750). Station officials say, “In early 2020 we were approached about the possibility of reacquiring KMMJ. team deliberation, one idea that surfaced was using it to launch MyBridge in Spanish. There was instant confirmation in our spirits… never mind the fact that this was not on any future planning document anywhere! And never mind that we had no Spanish speakers on our team.”
MyBridge in Spanish plans to launch June 1st.
WBGL/Champaign reports that a morning show co-host has been hired and an official announcement is coming soon. After 7 years morning co-host Lindsey Capperrune exited the station in Jan ’21 to relocate to Peoria where she joined sister station WCIC/Peoria as morning co-host. WBGL started its search for a new morning co-host at that time.
