According to the Cincinnati Enquirer, WNKU’s Middletown repeater has been sold to Grant County Broadcasters based in Dry Ridge KY. They own a country radio station. However, it does not automatically mean that 105.9 will switch to country. Here’s the link to the article:
On the bright side people can rejoice it didn’t get sold to a national sat-caster.and Jeff, the guy who bought it is definitely a local broadcasterLocal is good regardless of the format. I know a good independent classic hits station along the lines of WXRC in Charlotte to give WGRR a good run is out of the question, but I can dream.(Hopefully, that comment is sacchrine enough to where someone doesn’t feel a need to start a cyber-war!)
From John Kieswetter: WNKU Ends Broadcasting Thursday Sept. 28
According to John Kiesewetter WNKR is getting all of the studio equipment from WNKU. So it sounds to me like the programming and whatever the format will be will originate from the WNKR studios in Dry Ridge KY. They didn’t want the old farm house on the 17 acers property located in Middletown
Playing Classic Country and is simulcasting WNKR 106.7 as of yesterday. Strangley makes no mention of Cincinnati, Dayton, or southwest Ohio but instead calls itself “West Ohio’s County Giant”. Uh, to make that claim don’t you have to pretty much cover West Ohio? I can’t imagine the signal making it much north past Sideny, and you still have at least half of West Ohio north of that. And since when does 34K watts on a 512 foot tower sitting on relativley flat land qualify you as a “giant” anyway.
(Hopefully, my opinion is still sacchrine enough to the hypersensitive ones that seem to look for an opportunity to start a cyber-war!)
