Thus, you have what you have…small stations trying to superserve areas with Spanish speakers, such as WNZN/89.1, a non-comm rimshot into its COL of Lorain, and the weekend programming on WDLW.
Over on the east side of town, you have non-comm WHWN/88.3 “La Nueva Mia” Painesville.
A full market Spanish-language FM station is just not in the cards for Cleveland any time soon.
Well. guess I’m eating my words just a few hours later!

OMW, don’t worry, you didn’t about the new Spanish station until today. No one would’ve known.
Well, 106.1 Solon is still simulcasting WGAR/99.5 as recent as this afternoon. It would be a logical extension of 99X.
Recorded in Ultra Stereo, the ultimately superior cousin to Normal Stereo!
Nathan, do you think CC can increase the wattage of the 106.1 translator to 250 but still keep it in the east side, especially where 99.1 is non-existent?
If CC wanted to launch another Cleveland translator for Air 1, maybe resurrect 103.7 and have it in the same area 106.1 was planning to launch.
With the demise of WWMK later this week, could you now add a station aimed at kids and preteens to this list of formats needed?
A format definitely NOT needed is top 40/CHR and religious. Both are well covered in the market.
Kids and preteens don’t listen to the radio.
