    Another small market in Virginia loses its local radio station cluster. I can understand them wanting the tiny FM, but why the AM? More than likely it will be donated, or go dark. Nearby, Warrenton lost their stations years ago with the loss of WQRA and WKCW. True, 1420 is still on the air but it’s eerily ALWAYS on auto pilot with nobody ever cracking the mic. And, oddly enough the old WQRA building is/was occupied by PAR. I wonder which market will be next in the region for a satellite christian takeover – Front Royal, Culpeper (or their Louisa repeaters). More than likely up in Berkeley Springs, WV, as their AM/FM combo is/was up for sale after Metro Radio wants no part of them for their brokered ethnic formats. And, as I understand, their lease is up with the people that are LMA’ing them as oldies. There is nothing Positive, nor Alternative, with religious non-comms destroying the commercial band with more repeaters. This is killing radio as we know it more than anything else.
