WLIF-FM (Lite 102) fired veteran news director Dave Humphrey yesterday, replacing him with afternoon announcer Sloane Brown.The moves mean the light adult contemporary station will have just one full-time news announcer and will offer no newscasts after 8:30 weekday mornings. Previously, the station eliminated its weekend news broadcasts."People are not coming to A.C. [adult contemporary] stations for the news," said program director Gary Balaban, who added that the station would continue to air afternoon traffic and stock reports.

Dick Ireland, unceremoniously dumped in May after 26 years at WLIF-FM (101.9), has resurfaced as the voice behind afternoon drive time programming on WRBS-FM (95.1)."I just feel frankly blessed that I landed on my feet as quickly as I did," says Ireland, who was given practically no notice that he was being replaced at WLIF.

The deck may have been reshuffled at WLIF-FM (101.9), but management promises the game is remaining the same.Dick Ireland and Gary Hamilton, the station's morning and afternoon deejays, respectively, were both fired last week. Rumors have been circulating that this is only the first move in a major format change, but that's not the case at all, insists program director Gary Balaban."What has occurred are the changes," says Balaban, promising the music will remain as is. "The station has evolved over a long period of time from being a beautiful-music station to an adult contemporary station, and we felt that this was the time we needed to make a change in mornings and afternoons."

While the Ravens are locked in battle each Sunday, there's another a little skirmish going on the radio for the ears of football-listening fans, before and after the games.As CBS Radio's WLIF (101.9 FM) and WJFK (1300 AM) are getting fans psyched for game coverage and stoking them afterward every Sunday afternoon, WBAL (1090 AM) is attempting to siphon off listeners and -- more importantly -- advertising dollars by doing its own pre- and post-game Ravens show.As you might figure, both have their selling points and drawbacks.
