how many threads are we gonna have about 106.9 ?
It's an imporant story; and will probably go down as one of the top media stories in Philadelphia this year. A news-talk FM - the first since the old 96.5 WWDB, and one that appears to be gearing up for a serious drivetime news presence.
The other side of the coin is, of course, the demise of a radio station and format that has been a part of the Philly Radio framework for several decades. No matter what you think of WKDN, Harold Camping, and Family Radio, it's longevity in this market is undeniable. How many other formats have lasted that long? KYW? Anybody else?
How much cyberspace have we wasted over the years discussing speculation, griping, and minutia that has never amounted to anything other than..... well.... speculation, griping, and minutia?
The sale to Merlin, and the planned format change deserves the space being given to it; especially when the format change is anticipated on Monday, and with WKDN officially announcing hourly that Sunday, April 15, will be it's last day.
