NEW FM IN ASHLAND OR HUNTINGTON

Post by the voice »

New FM at 91.1 licensed to Ashland..now very low power translator oped by AFA ..is said to be ready to set up shop

in Huntington,WV. Looks to be a JOY FM or contem christian format. Steve Rhinhardt is projected as GM.

Dewayne Fowler may move over from PD at WEMM FM christian in Huntington as PD/SALES Manager.

Details between Fowler and the owners still to be worked out. Fowler is a strong follower of more music less talk.

His sales background could be a problem for the company and Steve.Could someone at CC be on the move?

We will see.

Some sources say ,if new FM is a JOY format ,former WTCR and WLGC Prod Director Dave Conley may be in the mix.

Conley out of radio since leaving WLGC about 3 years ago . He brings the very popular Little White Church program with him.

LWC was a great success at WTCR and then WLGC. A very weak try to recreate the show by both stations as failed.

Some say Fowler and Conley dont see eye to eye on gospel music. I would give my nod to Conley.

The JOY FM people might want to look at Conley as music director or PD. Let Fowler handle sales and some air work.

The plot makes for grat radio drama. Who at CC might move..a heavy weight in sales?

Same company that owns 88.1 in Pt. Pleasant and 88.7 in Blennerhassett (Parkersburg).

Their for-profit side owns 1030 and 99.5 Pt. Pleasant, WCEF Ripley, and the two AM's in Huntington, 1040 Cannonsburg, and 1110 Hurricane.

Also WLGN(AM) and WKNA(FM) Logan, Ohio.

I think the non-profit arm runs WOKE(FM) Garrison, KY (near Portsmouth, Ohio) as it's another "Joy FM" station.

They are first cousins, me thinks. I have often heard people joke about how incestuous the broadcast industry is, but in this case, it is true. :lol:

a 4 bay fm antenna has just shown up low on a tower in rotary park perhaps on the 61 tower. I don't know how much Fowler has as a salesman but does a good job on every thing else. plays a lot of music, does a good interview, but dosen't talk just to hear himself talk like a lot of people. I have known both of them for a long time and worked with both of them at WEMM. it will be a different pair.

Lynn Martin transferred it to a *AHEM* "buyer", (his brother) in order to keep the CP another 18 months in an attempt to sell it for more than it's $250,000 cost and not have to build-it-out.

Anything below 92.1 is a taxwaste.

18 months would put the Westwood CP expiration into November 2010....

Given the state of the business they better plan on building it. No-one is going to buy an expiring CP.
