Good riddance. The station already had gone as far downhill as possible without changing formats.

You can blame corporate powers, I suppose. But it's not just radio: it's the music industry as a whole.

Classic and alternative rock have been blurring since at least the early 1990s. Pearl Jam is partly to blame, as are its numerous clones, starting with Stone Temple Pilots. Their music was a snug fit for most classic rock stations.
