Crossroads Communications unveiled a new format for its flagship WBOW on Friday, and it was exciting to see the return to the famous radio call letters that have such deep tradition in Terre Haute media history.

Formerly B102.7, Crossroads management wisely decided to embrace its roots and relaunch itself as WBOW. In addition to making changes to its content format, which also sounds like an exciting development, the station invited the Tribune-Star to expand its partnership with the station by providing a sampling of its next-day Page 1 headlines. We are happy to do so. You can catch those headline promos each weekday afternoon during drive time on the new WBOW. We will be looking for other interesting ways to partner with the folks at Crossroads in the future.

Readers of the Saturday Opinion page undoubtedly made note of the recent retirement of William Rusher, a longtime conservative syndicated columnist whose work appeared on this page. Rusher’s traditional, measured style of commentary was refreshing in this day and age of hostile, high-pitched screeching from many of today’s political columnists.

To replace Rusher, we will offer the work of conservative columnist Byron York, chief political correspondent for the Washington Examiner. York has strong credentials as a conservative commentator. His work has appeared in numerous publications through the years, and he previously worked as White House correspondent for National Review magazine.

York’s column is scheduled to begin appearing next Saturday.
