When a station changes formats, it's because it's not working from a financial sense. Radio is about advertising revenues. They must feel that they can attract more listeners and thus more advertising dollars playing country music.
The lesson to be learned here is if you have a local station which you listen to and enjoy, it would be in your best interest to 1) patronize those who advertise on that station, and 2) be sure to tell them that you do so because of where they spend their advertising dollars.
Walking on water is easy. Just do it in December when it's frozen.
One day it was the Fox Sports Radio. Next day it is classic country. What is up?
My sister works at wmt which is under the same clear channel management as 1360, and she has no clue why they switched it. For some reason clear channel felt the market needed another country station, so they now own two in the market and have next to no listeners on either station and are getting their behinds handed to them by KHAK.
No format is going to work at 1360 unless they increase their power.
Not much they can do about that with 1350 on the dial in Des Moines.
Oh and it could be worse, there's a reason why i'm bumping this thread, at least Cedar Rapids has 1 sports station on the dial, Lincoln, NE lost their only sports radio outleft today when the station changed formats to Oldies.
