RE: Thanks

WNNZ has a directional pattern to the Northwest. People have called in the
local sports show listening from White River Junction, Vermont.. and Albany,
New York.. and Worcester.. but not much further east. They're probably
protecting 630 AM in providence and 650 in boston.

I believe it was!

Basically WLDM applied for a facailities change, call letters change...maybe
even a COL change.

WLDM shut down...and WNNZ went on the air.  I believe there may have even
been silent period while they re-did the facilities.

WNNZ was not a continuation of WLDM in the sense that they had high hopes
for the new facility/signal and broaden their programming appeal to a wider
geographic area.......and were not going to continue the local community
based programming they had been doing previously.

I remember they even had an article in the Globe touting their new
facilities, signal and their high hopes.  I remember thinking how odd it
would be to switch from 50KW to 1KW during January....and how this would
affect programming efforts/sucess.

(I remember trying to pick them up in Boston to no avail and wondered why
they were courting Globe readers...maybe simply for Worcester Westward?)
