Translator Report 5/22
A quiet week on the translator front this week. The top translator story this week is the return of the Urban format to Pittsburgh via 660 WPYT and 100.1 W261AX as we’ve been discussing for the past few weeks.
About 60 miles east of Kansas City we see the debut of a new CHR. 1430 KAOL Carrollton, MO has dropped its Sports format and with the addition of 101.3 K267BN Bosworth, MO it has relaunched as “101.3 The Grenade“.
A pair of translators are about to debut in Hilton Head Island, SC. 104.3 W282AT Hilton Head Island has been sold from Edgewater Broadcasting to Monterey Licenses’ Adventure Radio Group where it will bring Soft AC “1130 The Island” WHHW to FM. Across the Port Royal Sound in neighboring Beaufort, Edgewater’s 94.9 W235BD has a Construction Permit to upgrade from 2 watts to 250 watts at 94.5. Once complete, operations look to be shifting to Low Country Radio who have registered 945TheParty.com. Low Country Radio owns Classic Hits “104.9 The Surf” WLHH in the market.
The application we mentioned last week to boost the power of 97.5 W248AO Baltimore was granted a construction permit.
