WTMI-FM 93.1 2000/07/11 23:30 Bonnie Berman.  Classical.  This was to have been the last night of the station's classical music format, current ownership, and the "Music of the Night" show, which was hosted by Berman.  But Berman finds out near the end of the show that the takeover by the new ownership has been delayed for one day.  Berman's show ends at midnight, and the current owners did not have any programming planned to follow as they didn't expect to be owners any more.  WTMI and beethoven.com webmasters Sohail Fazluddin and Joe Cassara come in and play more classical music. 75 None
2000/07/12 23:50 Bonnie Berman. Classical.  The last 10 minutes of the "Music of the Night" show, Berman does a farewell, and an announcement from outgoing owner Marlin Broadcasting's Woody Tanger.  Station ID follows, and then an announcement by new owner Cox Broadcasting's vice-president Bob Green inviting listeners to hear and give input on the "New WTMI."  Aircheck is jockless from that point on.  The station would maintain a classical format for another year. 75 None
