Wikipedia entry for WKOX

Wed May 23 09:08:58 EDT 2012

What amazes me about this transfer is that, unlike just about every
other station transfer in reasonably large markets in the last few
years--at least in cases where the prospective licensee had not made
its programming plans clear, I have not seen postings by the WHOIS
detectives. These are the self-appointed folks who unearth new URL
registrations that may or may not be genuine and may or may not be
connected to the station whose license is to be transferred. This
time, I had expected to see postings about registrations for (at
least) and, speculation about who the REAL
domain-name registrants are, and speculation about whether the
registrants have any legitimate connection to Clear Channel or Clear
Channel Boston. Then there should be endless strings of posts by Bob
Nelson about the posts that contain the speculation.
