Pulse 87 New York On Death’s Door
Over the past few months we have reported on plans for New York Dance CHR “Pulse 87” WNYZ to expand to Chicago, Los Angeles, and Washington, D.C.. Those plans are all out the window now as Mega Media Group simply attempts to survive until next week.
The station is in danger of losing its lease on the frequency from its owner Island Media Group if it doesn’t make its next payment by next week. In order to reach its necessary financial goal, WNYZ is taking the unorthodox step of running a pledge-drive on a commercial radio station.
Our Insight: Pulse 87 and Mega Media Group are an underdog and the little guy deserves a chance to succeed, but in this economic time is it really in the service of the listener to expect them to temporarily stave off your demise when there are other musical options available to them (Granted none are on the FM dial)?
