That was 2002-2005-era WKSC and B96.
WKSC went to extreme levels (Often times hysterical, great radio was made) to try to take down B96. They had a brilliant staff there. Ratings obviously didn't go up enough to please management (Cume did) But they did great. There was even that Eddie & Jobo contract war of the summer of 2002. WKSC flew a banner over the B96 Summerbash that summer.
It was entertaining radio.
2005...was pretty much the end. They stopped mentioning B96. Eventually by 2006-2007 they became a really bad copycat of B96.
2010 or so B96 started heading back to Mainstream CHR. WKSC followed in 2013 by going back to a Mainstream, less Rhythmic lean. "Brotha Fred" was renamed "Fred & Angi" This happened in the PPM world however, so anything on the air outside of mornings is always short and quick. No more longform segments.
