Country had been the rumor for the last couple of weeks, at least that's when I first heard it. I didn't want to spread such a rumor, since those usually never come true. (Like the 5-yr old rumor about K-104 flipping to country.)
If it's going to flip into another Clear Channel "<frequency> the Bull" country clones, that would be a flip for the worse. If a country flip is coming, putting the current HD2 side channel on the main channel would be interesting...KZPS-HD2 "Lone Star 92.5 KZPS" is sort of an outlaw country/Americana/classic rock hybrid (which streams off the kzps.com website). This is what KPLX should have moved to...
But oldies? Like "Classic HITS 92.5" was? Or a higher-energy thing, like KODZ? Or perhaps a regurgitation of "Sunny"? Even "Sunny" was making headway, before CC pulled it and put on La Preciosa.
Clear Channel has phased out a number of oldies stations over the years. It only has about 5 or 6 oldies stations in large or medium sized markets now (WWSW Pittsburgh, KODJ Salt Lake City, WWBB Providence, WRIT Milwaukee, WMJI 105.7 Cleveland). A lot of their oldies stations have shifted to classic hits (WBIG Washington), all 70s (KQLL Tulsa), or 70s-80s (WXLY Charleston).
