Format Shuffle In Texarkana

Texarkana Radio Center contacted us to clarify that the new “107.1 The Fox” KTFS-FM is a “very” Hot AC rather than CHR.

FCC Applications 3/20: NYC FM On The Move

A small Class D FM in New York City is seeking a new dial position. City College of New York’s 90.3 WHCR-FM New York is seeking to relocate to 91.9 in an attempt to find a signal with less interference. With its entire 60dBu coverage area within the 40dBu of WHPC Garden City, WHCR-FM has trouble being heard within a kilometer of the station’s antenna. If approved, which would also require the dismissal of two pending translator applications, WHCR would continue to operate with its current 8 watts at 81 meters. Cesar Guel has been under close scrutiny for a series of LPFM applications. While many of those have been dismissed or are in the process of being modified, Guel’s Hispanic Christian Community Network is purchasing nine translators in California and Nevada from East...[Read More]
