More Morgantown Country

Post by Mr. Jones » Mon Aug 06, 2018 12:59 pm

LHTC Media has launched a third current based Country outlet in Morgantown WV.

1490 WBKE Fairmont launched its 98.3 W252EF translator and flipped from Talk to Country “98.3 Blake-FM“. The 250w/78m signal is operating from the tower of sister “100.9 Jack-FM” WZST Westover/Morgantown.

The station is running jockless and continues to serve as flagship for West Virginia Black Bears minor league baseball. The new format makes for the third Country outlet serving Morgantown alongside West Virginia Radio Company’s market leading 97.9 WKKW and Burbach Broadcasting’s “Froggy” trimulcast 92.7 WGIE Clarksburgh/102.7 WGYE Mannington/103.9 W280FF Morgantown.

Yes! More syndicated programming! ...... At least it's not another religious outlet.

Four signals, actually, including "The River" WFGM.

And it appears, from my listening in the South Park, Greenbag Road, and I-68 areas, that there is a new harmonic interfering with 93.1 that I never noticed before Friday. Hmmmm. Coincidence?

Wow, who wudda thought? Both Fairmont AM's have their translators is Morgantown (95.7 and 98.3). Maybe the two Morgantown AM's should move their translators to Fairmont? I'm hearing Morgantown may possibly get another out of town translator (Uniontown?) It's getting crazy out there....
