Re: WBMI West Branch Brouhaha

WBMI has been silent since January 25. The receiver filed the first STA then. The recent filing was an extension of that STA.

Re: WLMI Flipping

What logic is there to this? Midwest takes their best in-market signal and tries to position between WMMQ, WHZZ and a little bit of their own WJXQ. Returning to a variation of a format they did on the same frequency before debut of i929. They need to hire a few known Lansing names to give it a chanc...

WSRJ Sold

Looks like Northern Broadcast has sold WSRJ 105.5 to non-commercial Good News Media: $350,000 of which $145,000 is a gift.

Re: WLNZ 89.7 FM Shutting Down

Forgot about the 104.7 translator. I believe that was once operated by Spring Arbor University (as was KTGG prior to the sale to the Seventh Day Adventist group), and was a simulcast of WSAE. Coverage back then, even over downtown Lansing, was marginal at best. I'll have to check it out to see the ...

Re: WLNZ 89.7 FM Shutting Down

My prediction: The Seventh Day Adventist group that owns & operates 91.9 WGCP in Cadillac, 89.7 in Grand Rapids and various other stations across Michigan will acquire it. Is that the same group that operates KTGG 1540 in Okemos? Yes. Their TOH legal ID includes ALL of their stations. KTGG, which i...

Re: GVSU files a $50,000 deal to buy 95.3 translator from Goodrich Radio.

It's my understanding everything is for sale. 102.5 can't be separated from the AM as it was part of the AM Revitalization (haha). It's tied to the license forever otherwise GVSU would have jumped on that one also. If someone wants 102.5 they need to purchase 1680. If 1680 shuts down then 102.5 goe...

Re: Channel 5 didn't carry CBS Evening News?

It was a CBS issue, not a WNEM issue. It affected all CBS stations in the Eastern Time Zone it appears:
