95.1 Chicago Goes Clubsteppin
Watts has begun an LMA with an apparent option to buy Windy City Broadcasting’s 95.1 W236CF Chicago and 95.1 W236CG Bolingbrook IL which are fed by Spanish Broadcasting Systems’ 107.9 WLEY-HD2 Aurora. The translators had been airing a broad Rock format as “The Hound”.
Watts, the former Program Director of Urban Talk 1690 WVON Chicago, has been operating the webcaster since 2005. He told Robert Feder, “This move will be historic because this format has not been done on a 24/7 basis on a terrestrial radio station, and we are so thankful for Windy City Broadcasting for the opportunity to make this happen.” He also told Feder that he’ll be bringing “some familiar voices” back to Chicago.
