Anybody know where it is? Haven't heard it on the air in a while.

Heard it last week (Dec 6-12) simulcasting WDMJ with a News Talk format.
I'll be in UP Tuesday (12-15) and will check it out.

Yeah, that's what it's supposed to be doing, but every time I've scanned through it hasn't been there (day or night).

Did check 1240, but too much ignition noise. Will check. Haven't forgotten.

Called station this morning. Receptionist knew radio! 1240 WIAN is off! Waiting for transmitter part and will get station up and running ASAP! Many people calling concerning this, so AM isn't dead yet!

I am surprised at this point that they haven't tried to go FM, or at least consolidate 1240 and 1320 into a stronger station.

Well, WIAN has easily been off since last June! Have called the station a few times. The people answering are polite and it seems like a l-o-n-g time to wait for a transmitter part. Too, sadly, 1320-WDMJ is losing its western coverage area! In talking with someone who answered, he said people were not as polite as me. He'd been cursed at, etc. I mean really, he doesn't own the station. Still, one might think advertisers, etc are getting gipped. LIDs still say WDMJ and WIAN though.

Almost April and 1240 is still off the air! Coming up on 1 year. Sad,
I'm sick of calling and asking. It's not the receptionist's fault.
