The Journal Gazette profiles the first news anchor at WKJG-TV: Jack Gray. WKJG-TV were the call letters on Channel 33 from its November 1953 sign-on until 2003. Channel 33 served as Fort Wayne's NBC affiliate from 1953 until the end of July 2016.
On Saturday, Gary "Mack" McCarrick died. Mr. McCarrick co-hosted the "Mack and Moore" morning show on Country/WBTU (93.3fm, Kendallville) with Don Moore. Mr. Moore died in 2013 at age 60. While we don't have a complete broadcasting biography, we believe he worked at several Michigan radio stations. If you have more information, please send us an e-mail.
Artistic Media Partners' Standards/WDND (1620am) goes silent and files an STA with the FCC, as they lost their tower site (the tower lease expired). They're searching for a new tower site.
Neuhoff Media's ESPN Sports/WASK (1450am, Lafayette) signs on an FM translator last Thursday morning. 250-watt W269DJ (101.7fm, Lafayette) signed on, and the AM/FM combo rebranded as "101.7 The Hammer."
In 2006, WASK ended their oldies format (a simulcast with sister WASK-FM), and became an ESPN affiliate as "ESPN Radio 1450."
This afternoon, former WLFI-TV (Channel 8, Lafayette) sports anchor Clayton Duffy will join Neuhoff PD Jared Jesulaitis in afternoons for "The Hammer Down Show" from 4pm until 6pm.
iHeartMedia rebrands their Urban/WTFX (93.1fm, Clarksville) from "93.1 The Beat" to "Real 93.1".
Artistic Media Partners will sell their CHR/WBWB (96.7fm, Bloomington) and Country/WHCC (105.1fm, Ellettsville) to Sound Management for $4.4 million.
That's all for this issue. Thank you for your continued support.
