Interesting. There's really been no urban station in South Bend since WUBU flipped the first time. Looks like FedMed will service the "youth" market with Power, and target the older audience with WUBU. I like the smooth jazz format, but the programming they were using via satellite lacked any sort of local flavor. If you listen to smooth jazz stations in Chicago (WNUA) or Cleveland (WNWV) you get a good idea of what a strong sounding smooth jazz station is like. UBU was a nice try, but it didn't work well enough for South Bend.
So who will "Mix" pull their listener base back from? WSMK? Sunny? Oldies perhaps?
