>...WKSS's city of license is Hartford-Meriden. It's not simply Hartford... Anyone know the history on that one? If it was for 'local service' reasons, then why not just WKSS Meriden?
The station was originally WMMW-FM, Meriden. It later became WBMI in Meriden until 1971. It then became beautiful music WKSS, with a move to Hartford. I can't remember when the station started IDing as Hartford-Meriden, but usually when a station adds a larger city to an ID, the original city is mentioned first (like WWYZ Waterbury, Hartford). Don't know how the Hartford-Meriden thing happened.
