Looks like its getting closer... Heard silence for a few moments on the k-love stations, Also noticed Praise 102.7's facebook page has updated an hour ago with the new logo with the frequencies of the "praise network".

new website http://www.detroitpraisenetwork.com

Are they re-directing listeners on air?

Listening online at work.... and nothing! No mention of it whatsoever. Not even the live spots. Still referring to it as " Praise 102.7"

So far, none of the K-Love or Praise frequencies have changed, only the banners on the web site and Facebook page.

I love all the fake "likes" on the station's Facebook page.

93,000+ "likes" despite having next to zero visitor posting traffic and a weekly FM cume of perhaps 300,000. I doubt 1 in 3 listeners - especially given the station's old skewing demos - have "liked" the Facebook page.

Lying is not a very Christian thing to do!

WPZR’s Urban One sister stations also have a lot of Facebook likes. Praise Cleveland has 50,000 likes for an AM station and one FM translator. Praise DC has a whopping 282,000 likes. Praise Philly has 111,000 likes. Just for comparison, their massively popular Urban AC KMJQ Houston only has 373,000 Facebook likes.

Trying to get the stream to work, but it won't. Wanted to see if they were re-directing people on air as of yet or maybe they won't. The Website and there FB are already updated to the new frequency's.

Hmm? The website and the facebook page have been updated for a little while now, I would guess EMF should be taking over soon.

It all boils down to FCC approval. Don't worry...this thread will be updated accordingly as soon as that approval occurs.

Is it just me or is this taking longer than most EMF accusations? Also Radio One is doing a piss poor job at announcing the praise format move.
As for Radio One, with them selling 2 stations in the Detroit market, will they sell off another station in the future?

Exactly. I do think, they will exit the market eventually. 105.9 would likely go to Beasley I would imagine, in such an event. 107.5, I am not sure the masons would ever let that one go.
