Took about a year before they added local hosts.
WLS-FM relaunched there in 2008.
There was periods of time between 2009 and 2012 where it was musically comparable to MeTVFM. They had a deep playlist for a large market, especially during the request show. Ran from 50s thru 80s. I think they had a few Top 10 showings in the ratings. But it was obviously not enough 25-54
2011 - K-HITS launched.
2012 - Taken into a more Classic Rock (Softer Classic Rock) direction. Playlist was chopped in half and presentation was dulled down. Fred Winston was in and out fast.
2014-2017 - Several adjustments were made.
Late 2017 - K-HITS Flips
2018 - The Loop is sold
2018 - A more solid format and presentation, less competition. Big ratings.
In regards to 87.7 and 101.1, 87.7 was doing quite well given itís limited reach (Some cars cannot tune there) Once things were moved to 101.1, there were some periods where 101.1 had some of highest 6+ ratings the frequency had in many years.
