Ozzy’s out, Casting Crowns moving in at Chicago powerhouse WLUP

New owners of a well-known Chicago rock station plan to make a change this weekend.  This Saturday WLUP will end its rock tradition and begin playing Christian music.  Sorry Southern Gospel fans, they plan to play contemporary Christian music; but it is still music with a message.

The new owner’s web site says its existing stations play, “…encouraging contemporary Christian music from artist like Chris Tomlin, Casting Crowns, Lauren Daigle, Matthew West and more.”   The company’s mission statement lays out its Bible-based principles.

The Chicago Tribune reports the Educational Media Foundation bought the station for $21.5 million.
