Clearing the Static 2232

 We didn't get to a lot this week, largely because of the ongoing debate that comes up every time an owner turns off a station as happened in Pennsylvania this week. That was in the middle of the show, and before we covered that, we covered a sale on the Canadian side of the Niagara River, Civic Media's expansion and changes in Wisconsin, and Salem's changes in Seattle. After that discussion, we covered a station returning to a simulcast in Pennsylvania, and a new Rhythmic CHR in Orlando. All that and more on this week's show.

Clearing the Static 2230

It's an incredibly quiet week in radio this week. Most of the action we do have is in Texas, where Juan has entered another market, and a sale may lead to a couple format changes. It's so quiet that we go through all station sales, not just the ones we think will lead to format changes. Side note, the same owner that had a short lived Country format in Lynchburg has now launched the format in North Carolina. We then move to Vancouver, BC where Padison will launch its social radio format. This leads into the discussion which will fill the rest of the hour, which is about interactive radio in general and what we did and didn't like about concepts that have been tried in the past.
