Davidson Media continues the sell-off of its broadcast assets as it divests Spanish CHR “Mega 105.7” 1310 WEMG Camden NJ/Philadelphia to Michael Sciore’s M.S. Acquisitions & Holdings for $975,000. This will be the first broadcast property for the Cherry Hill NJ based Sciore. He previously operated Precision Funding Group and America’s Mortgage University. As part of the purchase he also assumes Davidson’s lease and option to purchase 105.7 W289AZ Camden. Following the sale of WEMG, Davidson Media will only retain a translator in San Bernardino CA.
Translator Moves 97.5 W248AW Franklin, IN has applied to modify its move to Indianapolis with a shift to an adjacent tower with 150 watts at 276 meters rebroadcasting Sports 1260 WNDE Indianapolis (Coverage Map). iHeartMedia is in the process of acquiring the translator from Educational Media Foundation, which was originally being disputed by Emmis on the condition that iHeart intended to rebroadcast an HD subchannel of 94.7 WFBQ on the translator. iHeart responded by stating that was to be a temporary condition to close the sale, but now agrees to keep the translator rebroadcasting WNDE for four years as required by the Mattoon Waiver and Emmis has dropped its Petition For Reconsideration.

Translator Moves Hope Christian Church of Marlton is making another attempt at relocating its CP for 105.7 W289AZ Trenton, NJ into the Philadelphia market. After its previous attempt at a Mattoon Waiver to relocate to Camden was denied, W289AZ has amended its application and been granted a Construction Permit to relocate to Palmyra, NJ with 250 watts vertical at 48 meters. With the overlap between its originally licensed contour and the newly granted one, W289AZ should be in position to then make its originally proposed move to the tower of Davidson Media’s Spanish CHR “Mega 1310” WEMG, which will be the station to be rebroadcast (Coverage Map). Edgewater Broadcasting’s CP for 102.7 W274BT Williston, FL applies to relocate to 92.1 with 250 watts at 257 meters from t...[Read More]
The FCC has denied Hope Christian Church of Marlton’s attempt to move 105.7 W289AZ Trenton, NJ to the tower site of Davidson Media’s “Mega 1310” WEMG Camden, NJ/Philadelphia, which would’ve become the originating station for the translator. The move would’ve required W289AZ to move approximately 25km to a location with zero overlap with the currently approved signal contours for the translator utilizing the “Mattoon Waiver”.

The translator would rebroadcast WEMG with coverage of downtown Philadelphia (Coverage Map). The FCC has quickly dismissed Dennis Jackson’s application to shift 103.1 W276BV Greenwich, CT to New Rochelle, NY with 250 watts at 136 meters due to potential interference complaints from listeners of Bridgelight LLC’s 103.1 W276AQ Fort Lee, NJ.
