The stations will play music from the 1960s and 1970s, with the same programming airing on both stations at the same time, said Dave Riethmiller, co-general manager of Summit City Radio stations. WGL-AM currently plays adult standards music mainly from the 1950s, while WGL-FM plays light rock.
Hughes was one of the original disc jockeys when former rock station WLYV, 1450-AM, became a hit in the late 1960s and early 1970s in
Fort Wayne. He later moved
on local country radio station WQHK, now at 105.1-FM and known as K-105.
With the oldies music on WGL AM and FM,
Summit City Radio said it will target adults
ages 25-54, with a secondary focus on ages 35-64. The stations will play songs
from the Beach Boys, early The Beatles, Elvis Presley, Motown and more,
