Station addresses confused!
Thu Nov 4 17:21:06 EDT 2010
I don't believe so. Principal seems to keep the calls of the stations
they buy even though the formats always change (to brokered ethnic and
brokered religion--usually in foreign languages). The first station
they bought, the one on 1530 in Bridgeport--still has its original
calls--WDJZ. And their most expensive station, for which they paid $14
million not that long ago (so station values had already tanked) still
has the calls it had before Principal bought it--WLIE. I don't know
what languages WLIE is programmed in now. It was an English-language
talk station before Principal bought it. A good slogan might have been
"WLIE, where you can always believe what you hear." Actually, WLIE was
named after the Long Island Expressway.
