  1. You’ve got the timeline on formats backwards — WCFL went to a religious based block format in 1983 after a last-gasp effort at full-service AC (which actually sounded pretty good in 1981 with Fred Winston in morning drive and Westwood One talker Jim Bohannon as morning news anchor. But the format didn’t stand out in an already crowded field). WLUP-FM bought the AM in 1986 and the AOR/Talk hybrid on AM-100 was introduced in April 1987. It would last until 1993 when the AM format was switched to all-sports, a format it continues to hold today as “ESPN 1000-WMVP”.
