The ESPN 97.7/ 101.1 is...in Syracuse

Thanks for the info! Since Citadel has stations in Worc at 100.1 and Providence at 99.7, it was possible (to me) that they'd be flipping to ESPN with those domain names as a tipoff...Again, at first
when I typed them in I got a blank page and then the Syracuse ESPN page showed up, so...
>>Understand that these are just spoiler domains that were registered by Citadel to cause some grief to their competitor, Galaxy. Citadel now has the ESPN affiliation on its WNSS 1260 Syracuse, but as of March 1 the affiliation moves over to Galaxy's WTLA 1200 North Syracuse (which will be relayed on the 97.7) and WSGO 1440 Oswego (which will be relayed on the 100.1 translator).
Got it! Yes, I looked up Oswego on radio-locator and saw there was a 100.1 around there
>>Citadel's only motivation here is to sow some confusion for anyone looking for the new ESPN stations when they launch in March. It may well be that they've registered something for 97.7 as well that nobody's noticed yet. In any event, it still has nothing to do with New England, as best I can tell.
Yup. For now 99.7 is relaying WPRO but who knows...
