This is just totally sad....doing alright in the PPM with the latest being a 4.7. Basically you have to guess that a flip is coming and what can we expect if so? A simulcast of Sports Radio 930 to counteract against 1010XL/92.5FM or do we get a new FM News-Talker that could push WOKV to play musical chairs with their stations?
Since Clear Channel is determined to cut costs, launching an FM News/Talk station would seem an unlikely choice, especially in a market this size.
Also Jodi Stewart (who use to work for Lex & Terry and The Eagle) got let go at WOLL Kool 105.5 in West Palm Beach.
Jodi's a professional, with a well-developed network of friends, she, most likely will land on her feet in short order!
Thanks for trying Clear Channel with the Oldies format and if a flip does indeed happen (which if it does I wouldn't be surprised if it was today) I do not think we have any options left of a station doing the format unless we see Renda try again but not the way they tried to revive the old "Cool 96.9".
Oh, speaking of Renda does anyone thing that the station sell of they did in Tulsa could be a sign of things to come for the company or was it just a move to bolster their other markets? Just curious to thoughts on that one while we start talking of things that could happen in Jax.
IMHO, even before there was a WJGH-FM, Renda's 94.1 always seemed to be a logical choice for a Classic hits format. While not the best signal in town, a properly programmed station could attract enough listeners and advertisers to be profitable, plus be a good flanker for Lite 96.1, since they seem to be skewing younger.
Also, regarding the Tulsa station sale, I think Renda was, most likely, raising cash for the rest of the company. Up until now, Tony Renda hasn't been known for selling his properties.
