    Entercom has filed an informal objection to the Application for Construction Permit filed by Fulcrum Community Communications for Channel 297 107.3

    I have no clue what Entercom is trying to accomplish. Sounds like they just want to hassle these people. Check it out for yourself.

    Entercom has now filed an informal objection to the other applicant in MX case 392 seeking 107.3 and filed a second round of paperwork against the first recipient of its objection noted two posts previous.

    Entercom is now claiming that Fulcrum Community Communications has not given its correct coordinates and blah blah blah and the proposed site may be on the list of Registered Historic Sites and “likely” would need an environmental impact study and blah blah blah.

    http://licensing.fcc.gov/cgi-bin/ws.exe/prod/cdbs/pubacc/prod/corrp_list.pl?Application_id=1579637&File_Prefix=BNPL&App_Arn=20131104AAD&Facility_id=193253

    In addition, Entercom is claiming the other applicant, Miisterio Centro Familiar – Everett, Wa, has filed on a tower without obtaining reasonable assurance and has bookkeeping errors in their application blah blah blah.

    http://licensing.fcc.gov/cgi-bin/ws.exe/prod/cdbs/pubacc/prod/corrp_list.pl?Application_id=1623887&File_Prefix=BNPL&App_Arn=20131115ACC&Facility_id=195517

    In spite of both applications providing second adjacent waiver data, Entercom is crying they are short spaced to their second adjacent KRWM and that both stations will cause interference and blah blah blah.

    Entercom is probably hoping these applicants will run away and be afraid of their mighty legal team coming up with some real art work, but after having read through the objections several times, I don’t think the FCC is going to dismiss either one of them except as part of resolving the MX.

    Jonathan Swift couldn’t have written this any better. Entercom finds itself a prisoner in a country run by little FM’s. Watch out Clear Channel, you’re next!

    The FCC has dismissed the application for LPFM service on Ch 262 100.3 MHz of the Radio Club of Bastyr University in Kenmore, WA. for failure to address second adjacent short spacing.

    Why don’t they make it a bit more complicated while they’re at it.

    This from komonews.com:

    SEATTLE — Beginning with the 2014 season, KOMO Newsradio and the University of Washington Huskies will reunite to bring fans around the Northwest the excitement of Husky football and basketball.

    From the first football game in Hawaii on August 30th through the 2020 season, Husky fans can hear every play, every game – home and away – on KOMO Newsradio 1000 AM and 97.7 FM.

    “We are excited about this new partnership with the KOMO News Network and the exposure it will provide the University of Washington through radio, television and digital,” said Andre Riley, General Manager of Washington IMG Sports Marketing. “KOMO’s multi-platform distribution will help more Husky fans hear game broadcasts through AM and FM simulcast signals, and will also allow for more UW coverage in the community throughout the year. I would also like to thank KJR for their many years of partnership.”

    “I couldn’t be more excited to welcome the Huskies back home to KOMO Newsradio,” said Janene Drafs, Vice President and General Manager of Sinclair Radio Seattle. “As a UW alum, I am proud and honored to once again be partnering with this outstanding athletic and academic institution.”

    KOMO and the University of Washington, both Northwest traditions, continue a broadcast partnership that spans 21 of the past 36 seasons. The longtime “Home of the Huskies” will once again be the flagship station for the Husky/IMG Sports Network. The move also marks a KOMO homecoming for the veteran voice of the Dawgs, Bob Rondeau, who will continue to team with Damon Huard.

    It’s a new era for Husky Athletics with a new football coach, a new stadium and a return to KOMO Newsradio 1000 AM and 97.7 FM.

    KOMO Newsradio is the Pacific Northwest’s only all-news radio station. Commuters rely on KOMO for traffic reports every 10 minutes on the 4’s, including before and after all Husky games.

    GO DAWGS!

    Sinclair Broadcast Group is one of the largest and most diversified television station operators in the country. For more information, please visit Sinclair’s website at http://www.sbgi.net

    There has been speculation that Clear Channel KJR may switch to conservative talk. CC has been cheapening the product for some years, losing talent and losing now it’s final local play by play contract. Sad to see one of the pioneers of the format go out with a whimper. But there seems to be a cyclical nature in this industry. Counting rimshots, there is all sports programming on 710, 850, 950, 1090, and 1380. Without pro basketball and hockey, not sure how 5 stations can be sustained.

    All AM stations may end up as Sports, since it’s the only thing that appears to work! The ratings don’t seem to matter and the owners and advertisers just love it!

    Nanci Donnellan has been a true pioneer. Graduated from high school in Lakewood (near Tacoma) but started her radio career in the Boston market. Was the first weekday host for ESPN radio following her stint on KJR back in 1994. Fought and beat breast cancer, was syndicated twice nationally, and now is doing sport talk on an FM stick in Tampa.

    Radio Insight reports plans for the translator to rebroadcast 96.9 HD2.

    We’ll probably also be saying goodbye to another three-letter call sign. 🙁
