Could this be the end of the road for WBAI in NYC?

Could this be the end of the road for WBAI in NYC?

WBAI has been on life support forever, if your not familiar with Pacifica its alt-left wing programing. When WBAI does go on the market I suspect Cumulus would probably make a bid for it.

Edit: Since there's no sale of WBAI immediately pending, expect the Pacifica looneys to continue to labor to keep WBAI in their hands, even if they end up broadcasting from a telephone pole in Manhattan with 100 watts.

They just can't picture the world being able to exist without their exalted programming. :razz

"Standing by the water fall in Paramus Park,
She was working for the friends of 'BAI,
She was collecting quarters in a paper cup,
She was looking for change and so was I..."

From "Ariel", by Dean Friedman

No doubt Ariel would soon become an "Enemy of 'BAI" following Pacifica's tinkering.

Ask not what your country can do FOR you; ask what they are about to do TO YOU!!

Cumulus has no money.

I suspect it will go to a non-profit.

Like Family Radio, perhaps? They sold off WFME-FM 94.7 to -- who else -- Cumulus, shortly after Harold Camping's end of the world stunt, and more recently, got back into the market by buying an AM blowtorch, WQEW.
