Did not realize Nexstar now owns it.
It was originally a product of Tribune Broadcasting, which was acquired by Nexstar back in September.

Re: WPON WCXI Updates - 2019

I don't know what this license is for exactly, but did anyone notice this on it: "This license expires 3:00 a.m. local time, March 08, 2020." That's just over 2 months from now!

Re: Cuts at Beasley Detroit

What a shame. Anne was there for so long, it seemed. I agree that Wheelz needs to pick her up ASAP. Only question is, what timeslot would they put her in? Don't count on it anytime soon. Usually a decent severance package is tied to a non-compete for a period of time. Might have already been in the...

In what crazy, fucked up world how does a company fire the PD who has brought your station (November 2019 PPM) ratings #1 18-34 Adults, #1 18-49 Adults and #1 25-54 Adults?

Re: WFCX to Central Michigan for $500,000

Application filed. No assets other than license and tower lease. All cash. Going non-com upon approval. I gotta believe that the transaction includes the transmitter, transmission line and antenna. Most likely referenced in Section 1, Paragraph (b), referring to personal property "used exclusively ...

Yes, off the air for at least the past week; presumably to save on the power bill, until buyers are found.
STA requests for both WSRT and WSRJ filed 12/19. "WSRT HAS SUSPENDED OPERATIONS DUE TO ONGOING FINANCIAL ISSUES WHICH HAVE MADE CONTINUED OPERATION AT THIS TIME UNSUSTAINABLE."

Re: The Fox soon WCMU

If 45 North owns the WMJZ tower, and if 45 North can acquire the WFDX license without having to assume the lease obligation that NBI currently bears, it *might* make sense for them to purchase the WFDX license at, say, a $250,000 price point. Would not at all discount the possibility that the true ...

https://www.whois.com/whois/jeny1073.com Of course anyone can register a domain just to get tongues wagging.

WLNS Audio Distortion

For months now, the studios mics, all of them it appears, have excessive clipping and just sound like crap. No issue with commercials, field reports, promos, etc. Its bad enough that beyond noon news (WLNS is the only one), my news viewing has shifted to WILX. Suprised its been going on so long. Som...

Is 103.9 still intact and not a part of the Q95 WABJ deal?
WLEN 103.9 has never been part of the WABJ cluster; its under separate ownership. The Koehn family has owned it since it signed on in 1965.

What were the two frequencies? I'm guessing 92.1 was one (WCCW's original frequency)
92.1 and 103.1

Dave Schaberg and Jim McCluskey tried to put 280A 103.9 into Big Rapids
WBZX was originally allocated to Harrison and moved into Big Rapids. The incumbent Big Rapids broadcaster did everything they could to prevent WBZX from getting licensed.
