Changes are coming at WNFN-106.7FM, which has been “ESPN 106.7 The Fan” since Dec. 23, 2004. Though no announcement has been made regarding format direction or new personalities, the changes will begin Thursday afternoon, according to both on-air promos and various sources.
One rumor has the station returning to the rap sound it featured during its tenure as “Blazin 106.7.” Another possibility cited has been shifting to gospel. Other guesses have been made about rock, country or even another all-sports format with a different primary syndicator, as they have now severed ties with EPSN.
In addition, another question concerns whether the station resumes having local on-air personalities and shows. Other than Middle Tennessee State University athletic events and coaches programs, there have been no local shows on 106.7FM since February, when the Thom Abraham program ended its run.
106.7FM is a Cumulus Media station. The company also owns WSM-FM (95.5 The Wolf), WQQK-FM (92Q), WRQQ-FM (97.1), and WTN-FM (Supertalk 99.7).
