Is 900 WATV in Birmingham still locally owned? They seem like they have done very well through the years, and are a great service to their audience...
Still locally owned and according to their website they have a few local hosts beyond the usual block of religious/gospel programming from local churches on Sunday.
I was surprised to see the variety and local hosts, because I always remember them as a nearly 24-hour relay of some satellite oldies/R&B type feed. But that was eons ago back when they still had a tower on Finley Blvd and broadcast in stereo.
Hmm… there's even a "WATV is looking for air talent" banner at the bottom of the home page. I hope that means they're growing!
Going back to S Alabama, does anyone know about WHOD in Jackson? They appear to still host the usual community show and swap shop along with local sports and Alabama football, with Rick and Bubba in the morning.
I guess we can't expect to find 100% local anymore. Even WHEP here in Foley has syndicated talk most of the day including Finebaum, Laura Ingraham and… some other folks. They don't put a schedule on their website so I never know what airs when.
