History

WERE-FM

The station first went on the air in 1948 as WERE-FM and was the FM outlet for WERE (AM), where it primarily simulcast the programming of its more popular AM sister station over the next 24 years. WERE-FM actually signed on one year prior to its AM counterpart. Year 1948 (MCMXLVIII) was a leap year starting on Thursday (link will display the 1948 calendar) of the Gregorian calendar. ...

WGCL

The stations were purchased by General Cinema Corporation in 1972, which would go on to change the call letters of the FM station to WGCL on August 15, 1972, while it flipped the station from its fully automated format to Top 40 as “G-98.” WGCL began as an affiliate of Drake-Chenault's "Solid Gold" format, which featured a Top 40/Oldies mix, but eventually went live and local. Famed programmer Lee Abrams helmed the station; George Jay was its news director. Image File history File links Wgcllogo. ... Image File history File links Wgcllogo. ...

Lee Abrams is a radio pioneer credited with innovations in multiple generations of station formatting. ...


One of "G-98"'s most recognized air personalities was "Dancin' Danny Wright", who later had a long stretch in afternoon drive at country WGAR. He later became nationally syndicated with his current show, Jones Radio Network's Danny Wright All Night. Danny Wright is a Seattle, Washington-based radio personality, and current host of Wright All Night on the Jones Radio Networks. ...

During the next 14 years the station would go on to enjoy moderate success in the face of significant competition from crosstown rock juggernaut, WMMS. Their best year was 1982 when they actually beat WMMS in the ratings, but after WMMS re-tooled and recaptured first place a short time later, WGCL slowly lost ground. The station was sold in 1986.

WNCX

The start of new era

With the station being sold to Detroit-based Metropolis Broadcasting, it ushered in a change. For only the second time its 38-year history, the station would change its call letters to WNCX (which was to stand for North Coast X-press, but Metropolis failed to service mark the slogan, which WMMS did) and format on October 22, 1986, when it adopted an eclectic rock/top 40 mixed format. To signal a sign of the changes to come, the station aired Beatles records non-stop for 72-hours after the last day of the old WGCL format, just before the launch of the new WNCX format. This was one of the earliest examples of "stunting" in between formats, a practice which became common some years later. It was rumored at the time that one reason for the stunt was that disgruntled WGCL employees who would be losing their jobs once Metropolis took over had stolen virtually all of the G-98 music library, forcing station staff to go out and purchase compact discs to play for when the new format launched (and in addition, the arrival of the compact-disc players the station had ordered was delayed for two days). It has been suggested that this article or section be merged into Trademark. ... is the 295th day of the year (296th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Stunting in radio broadcasting occurs when a radio station abruptly begins broadcasting seemingly uncharacteristic programming or making grandiose claims regarding itself or its competitors to generate attention or word of mouth. ...


While it was considered a new radio station, the staff was anything but new as it featured a well-seasoned lineup of Cleveland radio veterans—eight of whom were stolen directly from its heated rival, WMMS. Headed by the latter’s former Program Director, John Gorman (as WNCX Operations Manager) and 15-year WMMS veteran Denny Sanders (as WNCX Program Director), the pair promised “a much different sound than other stations,” and that they would “play a wide variety of music, 360 degrees of rock ‘n roll, from old to new to R&B.” WNCX's sizable playlist emphasized new music, local records, and included a Saturday night dance club music show. The format became a pioneering effort in what, just a short time later, would be a successful approach for many stations throughout the country, the "rock-CHR" format.


Its DJ lineup included former WGAR-AM personality Paul Tapie in the morning, former WHK Program Director and DJ Bernie Kimble in middays, Sanders in afternoons, former WMMS DJ Spaceman Scott in evenings, and Nancy Alden in late nights. WGAR-FM is a commercial FM radio station in Cleveland, Ohio, USA, broadcasting at 99. ... WHK is the oldest radio station in Cleveland, Ohio, and 15th oldest in the country still broadcasting. ...


At the time, the station was one of the first radio stations in Cleveland to have a complete on-air library made up of compact discs, having spent thousands of dollars on what was considered a fairly new and advanced form of media, as well as on CD players. Recorded station IDs and imaging was created by acclaimed "Word Jazz" artist Ken Nordine. CD re-directs here; see Cd for other meanings of CD. Image of a compact disc (pencil included for scale) A compact disc (or CD) is an optical disc used to store digital data, originally developed for storing digital audio. ...


Yet, three months after the cutting-edge station's high-visibility launch, all of the staff except for Paul Tapie were fired, and the station was put back up for sale. Most of the dismissed personalities enjoyed longevity in the market elsewhere. John Gorman became WMJI's program director in 1991 (and again at WMMS in 1994) and lasted until 1996. Sanders landed at WMJI in 1988, succeeded Gorman as Program Director in 1996, and stayed there until 2001; WMJI, under Gorman and Sanders, became the highest-rated and highest-billing Cleveland radio station of the 1990s. Spaceman Scott became the program direcor for WRQK in the late 80s, then came back to WMMS in the early 90s. Nancy Alden went to WDOK in April of 1987 and has been a fixture at that station ever since; while Bernie Kimble has been the program director at smooth jazz WNWV for over fifteen years.

WNWV is a commercial FM radio station serving the Cleveland, Ohio, USA, radio market (though technically licensed to Elyria). ...


The immediate offering of the station for re-sale, lead most observers to conclude that Metropolis Broadcasting was poorly organized and financed right from the start. Their sole other station (WDTX-FM in Detroit) was put up for sale at this time as well and, within just a few months, Metropolis Broadcasting had gone out of business completely.


The evolution to classic rock

During the time WNCX was offered again for sale, Metropolis Broadcasting employed the use of Cleveland-based radio consultant, Mike McVay, former program director and general manager at another Cleveland station, WMJI. McVay immediately relaunched WNCX as a 100% Classic Hits station, featuring an innocuous mix of pop-rock Classic artists like Elton John, Paul McCartney and Cat Stevens, with little promotion and dramatically reduced expenses. WMJI is a commercial FM radio station in Cleveland, Ohio, USA, broadcasting at 105. ... Sir Elton Hercules[1] John CBE[2] (born Reginald Kenneth Dwight on 25 March 1947) is a five-time Grammy and one-time Academy Award-winning English pop/rock singer, composer and pianist. ... Sir James Paul McCartney, MBE (born 18 June 1942) is an English singer-songwriter, composer, multi-instrumentalist, poet, entrepreneur, painter, record producer, film producer, and animal-rights activist. ... Yusuf Islam[1], formerly known by his stage name Cat Stevens (born Steven Demetre Georgiou on 21 July 1948 in London, UK), is an English musician, singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, educator, philanthropist and prominent convert to Islam. ...


The curiously swift abortion of the current-based eclectic format so soon after launch was a cause for concern in the local radio and musicians' community. However the oldies-based Classic Hits format had a level of success with Cleveland audiences as WMJI's heavy focus on 50's and early 60's Oldies (at that time) left a definite gap in the market for a station willing to serve listeners who enjoyed more recent memories. Over the next several rating periods, as WMJI began to compensate, WNCX eventually repositioned itself solidly between WMJI and WMMS, drawing from both stations by completing an evolution to pure Classic Rock. Consultant Mike McVay departed about this time. For the magazine, see Classic Rock (magazine). ...


Personality radio

Not too long after the evolution to classic rock, WNCX and its AM sister station found themselves being sold once again, but this time to locally based Metroplex Communications. Metroplex was headed by two Cleveland radio architects, Norman Wain and Bob Weiss, the former owners of the legendary Cleveland Top 40 station WIXY 1260 during the 1960s. WWMK AM 1260 is the Radio Disney affiliate in Cleveland, Ohio, and is owned by ABC Radio. ...


Wain and Weiss set out to accomplish once again what they had done in 1965, and that was to build a radio station with personality, particularly Cleveland personality. Over the next few years they did just that. Year 1965 (MCMLXV) was a common year starting on Friday (link will display full calendar) of the 1965 Gregorian calendar. ...


Bill Louis

Cleveland native Bill Louis was brought in to do middays in 1987—an airshift he still does to date In 1996 Louis added the program director duties of WNCX, while he named Cleveland native and WNCX morning show producer Dave Jockers as his assistant program director and music director. As of January 2006, both are still actively in those roles. Year 1996 (MCMXCVI) was a leap year starting on Monday (link will display full 1996 Gregorian calendar). ...


Michael Stanley

In 1990 Wain and then program director Doug Podell hired local rock musician Michael Stanley to host a one-hour radio program entitled “In the Heartland”; the show would eventually lead to Stanley taking over the afternoon shift on WNCX—an airshift he still does to date. This article is about the year. ... Michael Stanley (born March 25, 1948 as Michael Stanley Gee in Cleveland, Ohio) is an American singer, actor, and disc jockey. ...


Morning Shows

Paul Tapie

Comedian Paul Tapie, the lone holdover from the original staff, carried on in morning drive until his dismissal in 1989. The station posted several full-page ads adversting their morning-drive job opening as a result. Paul Tapie later went on to host the Ohio Lottery TV game show, "Cash Explosion" from 1988 until 2004. The Ohio Lottery is run by the state of Ohio. ...


Those Guys in the Morning

Hired by then-PD Paul Ingles (at the suggestion of programming guru Andy Bloom) from KMJK in Portland, Oregon, Those Guys in the Morning consisted of Rick Rydell and Todd Brandt, with sportscaster Mike Trivisonno (a frequent caller to Pete Franklin's Sportsline on WWWE-AM in the 70s). Although WNCX' overall ratings climbed during the late 1980s, topping rival WMMS in key rating categories, "Those Guys" had only marginal success in Cleveland, and were regularly criticized by the local paper, often speculating on their departure date from WNCX. As it turned out, they lasted less than two years. Ingles himself was relieved of his program director duties and was replaced by Doug Podell from Detroit. Andy Bloom is an American radio programmer, consultant and researcher who introduced the Howard Stern Show simulcasts in Philadelphia (1986) and Los Angeles (1991) as noted in Radio Only Cover Story Oct 1992 – Syndicated Morning Shows Are They For You Bloom is currently a conservative political communications strategist. ...

Mad Dogs and Englishmen

WNCX's next attempt in mornings was former Humble Pie drummer Jerry Shirley with sportscaster Mike Trivisonno - the sole holdover from the "Those Guys" show - and Paul Ingles. Ingles soon left, and was replaced on the show with Skip Herman. Paul Tapie even returned as a sidekick for the show within a few months of its' debut.

The Howard Stern Show

But even with the debut of Shirley in morning drive, Podell had convinced Wain and Weiss that it was time to consider a radical option - pick up New York-based Howard Stern. Podell had worked with Stern once in his hometown of Detroit, Michigan at former rock station WWWW in the early 1980s, until it switched to all country, an historical event that was forever immortalized in Stern’s autobiographical film Private Parts.

It would take until August of 1992 for WNCX and Stern to actually sign a deal and begin. The same programming consultant who had earlier helped convince Paul Ingalls to hire 'Those Guys in the Morning' from Portland, was brought back specifically to consult on the Stern start up. Bloom had been the program director at the first Stern simulcasts in Philadelphia and Los Angeles.


The existing morning show was disbanded, except for Shirley, who moved to overnights and became the stations' public affairs director. WNCX was a longtime home for the Howard Stern morning show, having run it from August 31, 1992 to December 31, 2005.

Corporate radio

In 1994, after seven more years of Cleveland radio ownership, Wain and Weiss retired by merging Metroplex Communications into the fast growing, Texas-based Clear Channel Communications. This spelled the exit for those two from Cleveland radio. For other uses, see Texas (disambiguation). ...

Following passage of the Telecom Act of 1996, Clear Channel continued its fast growth and announced a merger with Jacor Communications in 1998, the then-owner of a large group of radio stations in Cleveland. To comply with federal ownership guidelines, Clear Channel was forced to sell off numerous radio stations around the country.

In Cleveland, Clear Channel decided to divest its current properties before the merger. Sold to Radio One were sister stations WENZ and WERE-AM, while WNCX was sold to CBS/Infinity Radio.

Howard Stern, post-script

In October 2004, Stern announced that he would be moving his radio program to Sirius Satellite Radio, a subscription radio service where he could avoid the content restrictions being forced on to him by the Federal Communications Commission.

With Stern's move to subscription radio, WNCX ended up carring a morning show hosted by musician David Lee Roth, which began on January 3, 2006 and originated from Howard Stern's former flagship, WFNY-FM in New York, the former WXRK "K-Rock." Notably, David Lee Roth had been among the featured performers at Stern's Cleveland funeral 12 years earlier. (Coincidentally, both the WXRK calls and "92.3 K-Rock" nickname landed on the former WXTM in Cleveland, WNCX's sister station that also broadcasts at 92.3-FM.)

Shortly thereafter, WNCX aired a locally-produced classic rock morning show with no regular host, and also used the slot for tributes to past Cleveland radio stations and personalities, with many of those personalities filling in during the slot. On July 27, 2006, the station announced that Wynn Richards, aka "Mud" would become the primary host of the new morning show, joined by Kim Mihalik (former sidekick to WTAM's Mike Trivisonno) and newscaster Mike Olszewski.
