106.7 is no more

Although it’s been mentioned in a few other threads, it is worth noting that the transmitter for 106.7 is off as of December 12 2019. A sad end to a formerly significant station.

When I was growing up in the 90s/early 2000s, it was always a "which is better, KHQ or The Peak??"

Will this soon go non-com, with 24/7 Catholicism and non stop Hail Marys?

"If you stop at 106, you haven't reached THE PEAK. The difference is .7."
- Liner from the mid- or late '90s.

Peak was the edgier and more fun station (at least until they went Hot AC), but KHQ obviously did something right to have survived as long as they have (they'll be 40 in a few months - as will I). Both stations were a breath of fresh air to hear on trips up north, since I lived in the heart of the Detroit area which had no mass-appeal CHR at that time.

Remember during the morning rush, KHQ was THE station to listen to. Always had a daily quiz that usually anyone over the age of 10 knew the answer to, and many students would call in. If I recall the tag line was "Wake up with "The Captain" on KHQ"... speaking of, whatever happened to Bill Vogel?

He does tons of voiceovers for auto dealer radio spots all over the country.


Lori Bennett and Bob Walker have turned WLAV from an iconic classic rock station into a ratings boondoggle. Sad.

Some FCC website wrote:an STA application must be filed 10 days prior to the date of the operation proposed in the application.
Don't see anything filed for an STA to turn off the WSRT transmitter yet. What am I missing?

No, Relevant Radio couldn't afford to run WMKD @ 100kw a decade ago.

Relevant Radio merged with California-based Immaculate Heart Radio a couple of years ago, which gives the combined networks a large donor base, and just bought several AMs from Salem.

Speaking of WMKD (and WYSS), are they going to officially downgrade to Class A, since they've been running STA facilities for a few years now?

Ok... I don't post on this side of the board often, so what did I miss? so both 105.5 and 106.7fm are off the air now?

Yes, off the air for at least the past week; presumably to save on the power bill, until buyers are found.
