Clear Channel Acquires Tampa Area Translators
Reach Communications will transfer the licenses of four Tampa/St. Petersburg area translators to Clear Channel in exchange for a revised rebroadcasting agreement between Reach and Clear Channel to allow Reach to use HD subchannels to feed its other translators.
The four translators are: 88.3 W202CB Bayonet Point (which has applied to relocate to 99.1), 89.3 W207B Bayonet Point (which has applied to relocate to 100.1), 92.1 W221CE Wesley Chapel South, and 94.5 W233AV Gulfport (which is already operated by Clear Channel).
W202CB and W221CE will be licensed to rebroadcast a subchannel of 97.9 WXTB, while 89.3 will join 94.5 and Clear Channel’s 105.9 W290BJ West Tampa in rebroadcasting Classic Rock “Thunder” via 100.7 WMTX-HD2.
