    Way-FM Portland has a studio in Vancouver complete with automation and local drop-ins. So while yes, most programming comes from the network out of Franklin, they can drop in local commercials.

    Under current operation, Way-FM Portland is legally a commercial station so can run traditional, “hard sale” advertising. Now when the 96.3 transition happens, the question will be will they go Non-Comm when they own the main frequency. In which case, they would need to pull all “hard sale” advertising.

    My first thought was a new home for WE963PDX. I wonder what the primary will be. 970am?

    I remembered to tune-in for their legal ID and they legal IDed as “KXXP White Salmon/Portland” that accompanied with the notice to the West Side that signal may be staticy leads me to wonder if they are getting rid of the Translator. But why would they go to rim-shot KXXP when they purchased KWEE. Unless they plan to use KXXP as a way to set up translators across the northern part of the state. Maybe Pendleton?

    But didn’t the CP on White Salmon expire? I wonder if the deal with Way Media and iHeart Media is going to end so they went in with Plan A and Plan B. Plan A was a Full Power Portland based frequency with Plan B being White Salmon and since they got the Full Power, are going to abandon the CP.

    This actually works well with timing as the affiliate agreement between Tribune and FOX for KCPQ ends in July.

    The really sad thing here is The Fish replaced a local show with a show from Atlanta…and they don’t even hide it! From The Fish website:

    ABOUT KEVIN:
    Holding down mornings with Taylor since The Fish started in 2000. I love Atlanta, the music that we play and that I get to be a part of a radio station that touches so many people in a deep and personal way. Life is good!

    ABOUT TAYLOR:
    What a gift to hang out with the “best listeners in the world every morning”. The goal of the show is to mirror the “welcoming heart of God”. We try to offer you a good laugh on your way to work too because life brings so many challenges and laughter is the best medicine. I’ve been doing mornings at the Fish since October, 2000. Kevin is the brother I thought I always wanted. LOL.

    Guess the budget cut also affected the website editor who should have caught that…

    Smithview, WA is in the Gorge so John Chapman must be planning on moving the translator to Seaside.

    This is from Brian’s Facebook page: “No not leaving! There’s been some shuffling. I’ll be weather on the weekends and reporting a few days a week. I’ll miss the morning crew but this will give me the chance to get out in the community and learn more about the region.”

    Rod Hill on his Facebook page confirmed he is taking the morning slot.

    If sports were to move to 1190, I would think the talk format would move to 620.

    Although for this to happen would involve iHeart Media actually listening to what listeners want and that won’t happen until pigs fly into a frozen hell.

    104.5 Way-FM must love this…

    @boisebill 88.7 in Boise is not a complete waste. My Christmas music loving, lovely, fiancé is loving it. They have a good mix going on too so I’m loving it as it is not the same 50 songs that have been on since January.
