Re: Omelette returns

My bold prediction for WSRT: MacDonald-Garber buys it and flips it to Country as a simulcast of 96.7 the Bull. With this move, I could see the Bull shift to a playlist similar to Duke FM and WNKN/WNKR. I'm a little surprised EMF and Midwestern haven't done a deal similar to a swap, which would see 9...

Re: Updates

I just heard Terry Ray on 'KLT mention that 93.5 will be a simulcast of 97.5 starting at midnight.She also said there may be a third station added.(96.7 WRGZ maybe?) 98.9 is currently silent. Also WMKT is now broadcasting on their new translator at 103.3. 96.7 WRGZ would make sense since it and 99....

Re: KLT lives in the far north!!! 93.5 to dump Country.

As far as Country listening goes, WMKC indeed has a commanding share in the northern reaches of the market. Probably a 3:1 advantage over WTCM-FM/WBCM-FM, I would say. That's been true for many, many years. Country "dying" as a format? Are you joking? It's one of the most successful terrestrial FM ...

Re: School closings on local radio

It also doesn't help that there are a lot of school districts in WTCM-FM's coverage area. It would have been easier to name the schools that weren't closed on Tuesday (2/18) inside their coverage area: Bear Lake, Hart, Kaleva Norman Dickson, Ludington, Manistee, Mason County Central, Mason County Ea...

Re: Democrat Primary predictions

Biden and Warren have really fallen off fast! Going into Iowa, Biden was seen as a frontrunner. After finishing 4th in Iowa and 5th in New Hampshire, he is nearly toast. Warren was also seen as a top three candidate. She did place third in Iowa, but finished 4th in New Hampshire (behind Amy Klobucha...

Re: Interlochen temporarily using WSRJ 105.5

It's almost assuredly from Harrietta. 850 watts from 750' above ground level is at least enough juice to get them into Cadillac and probably Manistee, too. 88.7 has been in weak but steady in the Manistee area. It also helps that the next closest 88.7s are in Madison, WI, Benton Harbor, and Windsor...

It is also mentioned that this son had divested his share in WZTC. I think MacGarb will be buying one of 92.5...

Re: Interlochen temporarily using WSRJ 105.5

88.7 is back on the air, but at very low power (850W TPO at 750' AGL: https://licensing.fcc.gov/cgi-bin/ws.ex ... _num=28887)

Site is not mentioned in the STA, but I would guess it's from in the vicinity of the Harrietta tower.
