As a Madison resident for the first 18 years of my life, I find this news somewhat sad. WXGO was and still is a good outlet for local news and helped carry high school sports and some professional sports team broadcasts.
Not only that, but the area is somewhat limited on the number of strong signals that can be received already. The hilltop regions in the area don't have problems pulling in stations from Louisville and even Cincinnati, but even strong car radios struggle to pull in great signals in the downtown and riverfront areas in that region. I find it sad that the area may lose that outlet.
Besides, the CP doesn't even look like it will contribute significantly to the Cincinnati area... there is barely any coverage anywhere, except some decent signal in the northern KY and downtown regions.
Does a large metropolis need to strip a small town & countryside of one of its few signals? People already complain about the programming on other AMs in Cincinnati... what difference is another rimshot going to make?
