Apparently Bonneville thought they knew what they were doing in the *hit* music format and killed WGMS (after moving it to Z104's frequencies). That company sure makes sweeping changes. Apparently "George" sure sounds a lot like "Jack" which they brought into St. Louis, San Francisco and bought in Phoenix (without paying for the 'big' name).

Appparently WETA realized that D.C. still has a classical market worth targeting and quickly kicked back to the format. I believe D.C. was in a similar situation to SLC, where there are two NPR stations that focus on the news/talk programming segment.

Oh yes, this also made NPR's national (weekend) program "On the Media:"

From what I heard, WETA has previously been more music intensive but dropped that a few years back. The odd part was that so much of the talk programming was duplicated on another NPR station.
