Lafayette, IN (the home of Purdue University) landed the Variety Hits format on December 6, 2007, with 95.3 WLFF dropping its "Wolf Country" format to become 95.3 Bob FM. The old Jack FM in Indianapolis (WJJK) was a distant rimshot at best to the area, but its flip to Classic Hits last year negated any potential problems there.

It's a late Christmas gift for Omaha, KS! Waitt Radio brought the Variety Hits format back to the city the day after Christmas, almost one year after dropping it from the same market. Waitt dropped Bob FM from 106.9 KOPW-FM on December 31, 2006, but it brought it back (albeit in a new form) on December 26, 2007, replacing AC KLTQ "Lite Rock 101.9" with "101.9 the Big O" -- two days later (today), the station picked up new call letters KOOO.
