As if country fans in the Bay Area don't suffer enough! Today brings sad news for followers of the 95.7 The Wolf, formerly the Bay Area's home for contemporary country music: according to the Chron's sports blog, as of 10 a.m. today, the station switched to an all-sports format and will soon be changing its name from The Wolf 95.7 to the much-less-evocative SportsRadio 95.7. Per Susan Slusser at the Chron, "the station promises A's and Sharks' programming, with on-air personalities and other programming to be announced at a later date." Execs from Entercomm, the station's parent company, are also apparently in talks to broadcast from Stanford and Cal.

Insert achey-breaky heart reference here. But on the real: RIP, The Wolf. You will be missed.
