A 9 a.m. June 15 preliminary hearing in McDonald County Circuit Court is scheduled for Melanie Feagens, who is charged with stealing in connection with the theft of money from the Neosho PTO. The case is being heard in McDonald County on a change of venue from Newton County.
It didn't take long for new WMBH owner James Hardman to make big changes at WMBH, 1560 AM in Joplin.
I don't know when it changed over, but when I checked out the station on the way home from school today, the ESPN Sports had been replaced by standards. I heard music from Count Basie, Pat Boone, and the Lettermen as I drove home.
That type of format has worked well for AM 1490 in Carthage, but it remains to be seen if the area has enough room for two such stations. (Maybe one of them could try something new and switch to country. No one's doing that.)
Hardman bought the station last week for $1, according to Radio and Records.

Does anyone know if another local station is broadcasting the Cardinal games? It'd be a shame if they aren't being carried locally...
