Started jockless. Eventually Craig Carson (Back on WXSS Milwaukee since WZZN went Oldies in 2005) started doing overnight and weekend shifts. They eventually went with automated overnights.
Summer ‘01 their schedule was something like this
Jockless - Overnights
Valentine - Mornings (Tracked from KIIS Los Angeles, had local news and traffic and producer)
Gary Spears - Middays (Tracked from KIIS)
Rick Party - Afternoons (Local)
Carson Daly Most Requested - 7-8PM (Syndication)
Pyke - Evenings (Local)
Lots of syndicated favorites (Casey Kasem, Ricm Dees, Ellen K) on the weekends.
Java Joel started there November 19th, 2001. By then Randi West had replaced Gary Spears on the middays. Carson Daly was eventually moved to 11PM.
Chicago had two “KISS FMs” one that was almost all live and local until Energy launched January 26th, 2001.
B96 was Rhythmic CHR full blown at the time. WKSC went after B96 for not playing the rock hits and WTMX for not playing the rhythmic and pop hits. By 2002 it was an all out battle with B96
