Hey, folks, I'm the GM at AM980 The Eagle. Just to clear up a few things, the Hungerfords have not bought this station - it is property of the Epperson family. The Hungerfords, however, are reviving the Intelligent Investor show that ran for 20 years on WSJS before WSJS removed it. Michael Savage will not be on the schedule. The three "Mikes" we have are Huckabee, Gallagher and Medved. Yes, we are airing Wake Forest FB and BB this year, but we are not the "flagship" for them - that is IMG College, the company that produces and guides their sports broadcasts. Yes, our signal is smaller than WSJS - at 1.3 Kilowatts...whihc is why we will try to overserve Forsyth County and be "ruthlessly local". Laura Ingraham is a nice catch for us - and she will be appearing in market sometime with us next year for a live appearance. Smith Patterson IS news in this market; I am thankful to have him. I hope this helps clear the waters a bit.
Mr. GM, I've noticed that the Epperson's WTRU 830 AM is being rebroadcast on 2 FM translators. One is W249BZ 97.7 in Clemmons with 250 watts and the other is W275AL 102.9 in High Point with 99 watts. It would be great for the Epperson's to put WEGO on the Clemmons translator to at least give it a chance to cover Winston Salem at night & early in the morning. Surely WTRU with 50KW Day & 10 KW night can cover the market without a translator. Hopefully you folks are working on this as I type.
