WURO & WUWB

Post by tvbobn » Fri Jun 05, 2020 2:46 pm

Anyone in the central Michigan area know if WURO channel 18 Roscommon and WUWB West Branch channel 20 are on the air or not.

Someone several months ago posted something about them both being off the air, but I couldn't find that post.

RabbitEars still shows them on the air, but I was camping near West Branch several weeks ago and couldn't get a signal from either station. I was only there one night, so was wondering if they've been off since the post months ago or if they're back on now?

Camping near West Branch, eh? Kicking the tires on WBMI perhaps? With an FM, and a couple of LPTV's, you could be king of all media in Ogemaw County. Bring on the $5 spots!

We sold both of those stations to Glen Wilson/M33 Media. I wondered if he still had them on the air. RabbitEars shows them on, but someone several months ago posted one was off and then the other one went off. When I was up there I couldn't get a signal from either one!

You're the only person that's replied to my post. Thanks!

I'm not interested in getting in the boonies ever again! Built 4 radio stations and several LPTV's, been there, done that!

That would be me that reported WURO and WUWB off the air. WUWB went off the air around a year and WURO late summer if I recall correctly. My wife and I had a cottage in Houghton Lake Heights, and had a 40' tower. Both stations came in well. When the cottage was sold in October, both stations were off the air. I don't know what their status is since then (other than what I read here).

You could try to contact the owner via their web site: http://m33media.com/

Damn, that site is like a scam retailer without the retail: no physical address, phone number, or email address to be found - at least not in the usual place(s).

Oddly enough, in Terms & Conditions:

"Terms and Conditions

WFT is that even doing there?

M33 Media is a wireless internet provider in that whole area from north of Fairview Mio area to south of West Branch. Have been for several years, long before he purchased the LPTV stations.

Definitely a workable business model, but that's an economically challenged area. Your customer base would be limited.
