WTZN-FM (93.7) listeners woke up to Christmas music instead of talk today.
The Zone, marketed as "The Man Station," a short-lived talk format aimed at male listeners, is being dumped for a new format, which is set to launch this Friday at 5 p.m.
Until then, the station will play Christmas music.
WTZN debuted in April, with a lineup of local talk hosts that included Scott Paulsen and John McIntire, along with the syndicated Dennis Miller show.
CBS Radio Pittsburgh vice president of programming Keith Clark would not elaborate on what the new format will be.
More details in tomorrow's Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
