Anchor Radio and Ryan Media have come to a settlement to resolve one of the mutually exclusive conflicts created on the first day of the AM Translator Waiver Period. Anchor Radio is taking a $25,000 cash settlement from Ryan Media to withdraw its application for 104.7 W284AD New Albany IN to move to 96.1 with 250w/115m from its existing tower site. W284AD will continue to operate on 104.7, albeit with a directional 99 watts rebroadcasting Gospel "1240 Love" WLLV Louisville.
Back in 2009, Radio Training Network's "93.3 The Joy-FM" WVFJ-FM Manchester GA, Rome Radio Partners' 93.5 WSRM Coosa GA and Cox Media Urban AC "Kiss 104.1" WALR-FM Greenville GA filed contingent applications to modify their facilities. The moves would see WVFJ-FM change city-of-license to Greenville while upgrading from a Class C1 to C0, WSRM move to a new tower site with a directional antenna to protect WVFJ-FM, and WALR-FM downgrade from a C0 to C1 while changing city-of-license to Palmetto. After a series of application modifications and objections the FCC has finally ruled on what can proceed.

The former management had some harsh words for the Huntsville business community following the departure of the “Hot 103.5” format. Thanks to everyone in the Huntsville area who have supported Hot 103.5 over the past 6-years….sadly within hours we will say Goodbye! — Karen Porter Mktg (@karenportermark) March 20, 2014 https://twitter.com/HOT1035HUNTS/status/447782298117623808 Original Report 12/6/13: Stroh Comm has sold Rhythmic CHR “Hot 103.5” WHWT New Hope/Huntsville, AL to Educational Media Foundation.
