It appears that the switch of 104.3 from Urban/Hip-Hop to All Talk didn’t last very long. Last July, Beat 104.3 became The Coyote, an all talk format with Howard Stern in the morning, followed by some Comedy Radio compilation show, Don & Mike, Russ Martin, and Tom Leykis. I noticed last week that the Beat had been resurrected (hopefully they’ll find the time to fix that godawful web site).
It appears that Howard Stern remains in what is now a somewhat peculiar hybrid station. It may be the best of both worlds. Austin couldn’t really afford to lose Beat 104.3, but their morning stuff left a lot to be desired. I found the rest of the Coyote line-up annoying at best and I can only stand Stern in small doses unless I’m interested in the guest.
