ABC has just purchased the Satellite Music Network and they wanted to get clearance on as many affiliates as possible.
Stories from the summer of 1989 said ABC wanted to put the heavy metal Z-Rock format on 890.
The talk format was pretty cheap in the early going. The original plan was to have Don/Roma, Winston, and Landecker do talk surrounded by satellite programming from the ABC Talkradio network. When Fred and John said no, WLS hired Stacy Taylor from San Diego and Bob Lassiter from Tampa.
ABC was minutes away from flipping WLS to classic country in 1992 when Drew Hayes managed to win a stay of execution.
