Merlin Media put together the current format heard on 101.1 under Jim Richards less than a year after FM News 101.1 launched. It was on 87.7 and 101.1 HD-3 (Later HD-2) Cumulus liked it and moved it to 101.1 in early 2014. They have since cloned it on several other radio stations they own.
A lot of the staff there now are left over from both the Emmis and Merlin Media days.
Since going Alternative (Straight-ahead Alternative, not Active-Alternative hybrid like Emmis was doing) 101.1 has seen some of it's best ratings in a long time. It's not the biggest thing in the world, but it's nothing to be ashamed of. They're doing a great job with it.
