Re: WCCC (AM) flips to Classical; WHUC flips to Standards
Well a posting here yesterday said that financially-
strapped WCLV Cleveland traded it's full B signal on
95.5 to Salem for cash plus 1420 in Cleveland and a
Class A FM in Lorain OH. WCLV has been classical forever
and presumably will continue classical until it goes
belly up (probably not too long).
Salem, having just bought two of Cleveland's three 50-kW
AMs (850 and 1220) had no need for 1420 or its other
Cleveland AM (1300, I think).
Allegedly, WCLV claimed that, the Cleveland/Lorain AM/FM
combo will cover better in digital stereo than the
former 95.5 signal covers now. Considering that the
claim is based in part on the coverage of 1420 in
digital stereo, I'm preparing to sell a bridge that I
own to WCLV's owners.
There is also a classical-formatted AM in Denver that
bounced between successively poorer FM facilities until
it landed on a fairly poor AM signal. The station, which
I believe is owned by Clear Channel, may in fact now be
on its way down the Denver AM food chain. I seem to
recall that, since moving to AM, it has gone from a 5-kW
signal on 1280 to a 1-kW graveyard signal on 1340. I'm
not sure of that, however.
