Re: 1660 Kalamazoo "The Fan" flips to Urban Format

WTOU 1560 is a Daytimer, 4.1 D3. WQLR 1660 is Fulltime, 10/1 U1. I don't think you can flip the translator to 1660 as the originating station. The AM and translator go together. The WRTH designation is clearer than the FCC designation in this case. The 95.5 translator is not subject to that restric...

Re: Blarney Stone Petitions FCC to cancel WLDR license

I don't see how this makes sense UNLESS they can leverage an agreement to drop the challenge in exchange for getting the station license at a discount. If the FCC revokes, it's a long hard battle to gain it back, and a lot of people will apply. Once the evidence has been presented by a station has ...

Re: WLDR Renewal Applications

Even worse is that he owned the tower site and lost it to a tax foreclosure a few years ago. He was going to be evicted but something was worked out. I sincerely don't think anyone is managing his properties. And the purchaser of the WLDR tower was non-other than Blarney Stone! https://fccinfo.com/...

Re: WILX

When they went digital, they chose to remain on RF Channel 10. They also now simulcast all signals on RF Channel 29 (WLMN-LD), which has a fairly robust signal from a tower at Pennsylvania and 496,

WBMI has been silent since January 25. The receiver filed the first STA then. The recent filing was an extension of that STA.

Re: WLMI Flipping

What logic is there to this? Midwest takes their best in-market signal and tries to position between WMMQ, WHZZ and a little bit of their own WJXQ. Returning to a variation of a format they did on the same frequency before debut of i929. They need to hire a few known Lansing names to give it a chanc...

WSRJ Sold

Looks like Northern Broadcast has sold WSRJ 105.5 to non-commercial Good News Media: $350,000 of which $145,000 is a gift.

Re: WLNZ 89.7 FM Shutting Down

Forgot about the 104.7 translator. I believe that was once operated by Spring Arbor University (as was KTGG prior to the sale to the Seventh Day Adventist group), and was a simulcast of WSAE. Coverage back then, even over downtown Lansing, was marginal at best. I'll have to check it out to see the ...

Re: WLNZ 89.7 FM Shutting Down

My prediction: The Seventh Day Adventist group that owns & operates 91.9 WGCP in Cadillac, 89.7 in Grand Rapids and various other stations across Michigan will acquire it. Is that the same group that operates KTGG 1540 in Okemos? Yes. Their TOH legal ID includes ALL of their stations. KTGG, which i...
