    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!

    With the impending demise of 87.7, I’ll say an east side translator for 99x. Also a Rhythmic AC like in Boston, Seattle, and now Chicago.

    I wonder if 99X will see a bump (appearing, of course, as WMMS-HD2) in the next full PPM after the 1st?

    I would like to see 106.1 become the 2nd transmitter for the 99X format. That would and should be a logical choice now that 87.7 is switching formats.

    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.

    Yeah, I think the parents are going to miss Radio Disney more than the kids. WWMK still on air as of tonight.

    Another format NOT needed is sports in my opinion. Already covered on

    1350
    92.3

    Could rock be the first to move online? Looks like there’s more emphasis placed on Sports lately.

    Alt-rock is pretty much an online format these days, as it’s pretty much been given up on as a format on terrestrial radio.

    Urban Gospel could soon be a format NOT needed….

    CURRENT STATIONS
    1000 WCCD
    1300 WJMO
    89.1 WNZN
    93.1 WZAK HD2

    and possibly soon 1260 ?

    Would this be considered overload?

    Where could Classic Hip-Hop fit in the categories of needed and not needed?

    #127024

    Classic hip-hop would be a needed format. Still not sure if it will be a thing like ‘Jammin Oldies’ or a true need in urban formats to fill the void between Urban AC and Mainstream Urban?
