FARGO-A three-station group of local radio stations are seeing some big changes.

An email from Terry Loomis, general manager and marketing specialist with Great Plains Integrated Marketing in Fargo, the stations' owner, announced Thursday that classic rock station The Eagle 106.9 FM has changed to a "music focus throughout the entire day."

  The email from Loomis didn't provide other information about The Eagle, including whether the station's on-air hosts or other employees were let go because of the change. Loomis didn't reply to several calls and an email requesting more information.

Great Plains on Thursday also announced upcoming modifications to its two other radio stations, Thunder 106.1 FM and Ag News 890 AM.

Mick Kjar, a longtime meteorologist and agriculture director at Valley News Live in Fargo who recently announced he'll retire from the TV station Sept. 4, will step into a bigger role with the company.

The email said Kjar will continue to host the "Farm Talk" show on Ag News but will now be the full-time farm director at Ag News and Thunder 106.1. He'll also be the full-time meteorologist for all three Great Plains radio stations.
