100.3 Miami

FCC Applications 7/3

Station Moves Univision Spanish News/Talk “Radio Mambi 710” WAQI Miami has applied to relocate to the site of sister 1140 WQBA.

Portland and Miami Talkers Add FM Translators

The exodus of News/Talk to the FM band continues as Clear Channel adds FM Translators for two more of its AM’s. Following on the heels of crosstown 750 KXL adding a full-powered simulcast on 101.1, Clear Channel’s “NewsRadio 1190” KEX follows it to the FM band via 102.3 K272EL. The 99 watt translator covers Portland proper, but will not have the full market coverage of KXL-FM. The move is made possible via an arrangement with Way-FM Media. Way gave Clear Channel access to 102.3 in exchange for Way to program 105.9 KFBW-HD2 as a feeder for its 104.5 K283BL Beaverton. That station debuted on April 1 as Christian AC “104.5 Way-FM“.
