Washington's news-radio giant WTOP initiated a move exclusively to the FM dial yesterday, with plans to yield its signals at 1500 AM and 107.7 FM to a new station featuring content from The Washington Post in March. The move announced by Bonneville International Corp., WTOP's parent company, is part of a major shift in its news and music programming in the Washington area. Additionally, Bonneville canceled its modern-music FM station Z104 (104.1 and 103.9 in Frederick) and began broadcasting classical station WGMS-FM at those signals.

What kind of driver are you? Do you depend on radio stations to provide you traffic information for your commute? Or do you just head out, pump up your favorite tunes and hope for the best? If you depend on the State Highway Administration's variable message signs to be your only source of information, the resounding message in Traffic Talk's inbox last week was: Don't. Mike Singer was one of those who responded to last week's column on variable message signs along Interstate 95; he suggested that Mark Middlebusher, who had questioned the placement of the variable message signs, and "other D.C.-area commuters," should listen to WTOP 1500 AM. Mr. Singer acknowledged that he listens to the radio station for traffic information every day. Mr. Middlebusher confirmed that he is a fan of WTOP and has entered the station's phone number on his cell phone's speed dial.

Gone are WWDC of the District and WWIN here. Powerful WTOP (1500 AM) of Washington is the team's new flagship station. And, in Baltimore, the Bullets will be heard on WBAL (1090 AM).Some of the time, that is.WBAL will air a game of the week this season, including the four from the Baltimore Arena.
