At midnight today, Renda flipped newly acquired Urban/AC "Majic 107.1" WJJJ (licensed to Greensburg, PA but hitting part of the Pittsburgh market) to Variety Hits as SAM 107.1, with new call letters WGSM to come. The station is going to focus on the town of Greensburg, with its office of operation moving there from Pittsburgh. The format choice is curious, however, as the city of Greensburg falls within the city-grade radius of 96.9 Bob FM out of Pittsburgh.
