WJFK HD-2

Post by AmpedNow » Fri Oct 16, 2009 12:16 am

Just seen on DCRTV that the new all-sports WJFK in DC will be launching their HD-2 channel on 10/20. It will feature a unique show hosted by Chad Dukes, who has been a host at the station for some time now. He mentions it in his blog.

I mention this because HD radio apparently isn't dead just yet, at least in large markets. The station also plans to build a website and stream around the HD-2 channel.

This could be one of the benefits of HD radio subchannels, besides AM simulcasts and automated music jukeboxes. Not only promote it with exclusive content from existing talent, but use it to incubate new talent and formats. Or, how much existing talent is out there who would create programming for free, just to get back on the air again?

I'm just glad to see HD radio actually being used and promoted in some markets... The more choices, the better.
