FCC Report 7/23: Salem Denied Two Cleveland Translators
Media-Com Inc. News/Talk 100.1 WNIR Kent/Akron OH has been granted its Petition For Reconsiderations against two subsidiaries of Salem Media to relocate two translators from Angola IN and Battle Creek MI respectively to 99.9 and 100.3 in Cleveland where they were to rebroadcast Conservative Talk “1420 The Answer” WHK and Christian Preaching “1220 The Word” WHKW. Media-Com petitioned that the new translators would create interference for its listeners within their contours. Salem purchased 99.9 W260CY (then 99.1 W256CO Angola) and 100.3 W262CY (originally 100.5 W263CS Battle Creek) from Friends of Christian Radio for $50,000 each last year.
Stay tuned for a big San Diego AM downgrade and nearly 150 translator modifications ahead of the filing freeze.
