What if it's all a hoax?

Kevin notes that the powers that be at Clear Channel in Houston have pulled a few stunts in the past, and wonders if maybe the furor over KLOL's format change could be another trick on their part. Who knows? I will say this - format changes, especially when they involve a new and big player into an established market, often provoke chain reactions. Remember how old-school classic rock station KZFX changed its tune after The Arrow entered the scene? As I said before, it would not shock me if one of the lower-rated existing Latino/Tejano stations moves to fill the niche KLOL has abandoned. Maybe they'll even be better than what KLOL was just before the change. It could happen.

By the way, go to Clear Channel's radio homepage, click on Station Search, and enter Houston as the criteria. Someone's still a little conflicted over there regarding the KLOL change.

BTW I recall reading a few weeks ago that 790 will switch formats after New Year's from Lawerence Welk "Nostalgia" to Sports Talk. They will apparently use ESPN Radio prgrams which are currently used on 610.

Charlie Pallilo is likely going to 790 and hasn't been on 610 for almost a month.
