Yes, Air 1’s 90.7 Eugene translator has been completely destroyed in Eugene, ever since 91.1 KWAX raised their HD (IBOC) power. EMF might as well just turn it off. K-Love’s 107.3 translator has never sounded very good, since it’s fed by the weak 100.9 from Blanton Heights.
Moving 103.7 to Eugene, was what they should have done from day one. Since a C0 in Eugene is worth big bucks, I would expect EMF to work out a deal to swap 103.7 for one of the weaker Eugene FM’s.
Cumulus could end up buying 103.7, and EMF could purchase the C3 at 97.7, moving in from the Coast.
Wow, no more Spanish on 99.5 KWEI, after all these years.
Hopefully 104.5 KMCQ will be sold soon. First doesn’t deserve to be in the radio business.
104.5 KMCQ is being auctioned off tomorrow. Will it be going to Clear Channel, Entercom, or Fisher?
104.9’s KSGX calls became official on 11/22/10. Prior to 10/21/99, 104.9 was KKBY, known as “Y104.9” (R&B) which followed “Cowboy” Classic Country.
Were they just granted the CP?
Has Fisher been talking to First about taking over KMCQ?
I believe it’s been about 10 years since AM Stereo has been factory installed in cars. I have yet to find an HD Radio that can decode C-QUAM.
I would vote for analog AM Stereo on 570 KVI, but I highly doubt that would ever happen, considering the lack of AM Stereo tuners out there.
Seattle doesn’t have an FM Oldies station? Isn’t 104.5 KMCQ an Oldies station?
Since Clear Channel already has Oldies 106.7, I’m thinking 860 KPAM switching to Oldies would be more likely.
Could Portland see another AM Oldies station? I’m thinking it’s quite possible.
Where does this leave 104.5 KMCQ? They have been Seattle’s invisible Oldies station, with no ratings that I could find.
Exradiodude was thinking Garth Brooks, and the kind of format 95.3 had as “The Moose” from 2004 to 2009. They played contemporary Country, along with a few older songs from Patsy Cline, Bellamy Brothers, Rosanne Cash, Hank Williams, Jr., etc.
