Indiana RadioWatch: December 22, 2001
Many thanks to all who submitted corrections to our radio station/company
database. All have been put into the system and are reflected on the
website! Thanks for keeping the archive as accurate as possible!
For the first time in awhile, there's something new on the website, but
you won't find it linked anywhere. Every week, we'll put something new up
that's in our "prize closet" (it's our archive at IRW central that
consists of photos, scans of things we've seen, audio files, etc.)
A special note: Due to limited disk space, no bonuses will be kept online
after their featured week.
While we have a small selection to choose from, we certainly welcome your
submissions. We welcome picture files (example: .bmp, .gif, .jpg) or
audio files (example: .mp3, .au, .wav) - send all to email@example.com -
Also, PLEASE indicate if you would like to be publically acknowledged for
This week's bonus is an ID from WOWO (1190am, Fort Wayne) from the early
1990's. Voiced by Chris Roberts, accompanied by a JAM Jingle, it leads
into a local newscast, anchored by Van Rockefeller.
Now, onto the news of the week...
Standards/WSHI (106.3fm, Columbia City) flips to all Christmas music
through Christmas day at midnight. Reason being...the Westwood One
standards format it uses has gone all-Christmas.
Religious/WFCV (1090am, Fort Wayne) files an application with the FCC to
raise day power to 2500 watts, remaining at 1000 watts during critical
hours, all from their current transmitter site.
Country/WGRL (98.9fm, Noblesville) flips to all Christmas, as "93.9 The
Christmas Channel." If you're not in the Indy area, listen to them online
APD/MD Stacy "Rocky" Brier, exits CVL Broadcasting's CHR/WVXI (106.3fm),
Hot AC/WIMC (103.9fm), and Oldies/WCVL (1550am, all Crawfordsville).
AAA/WTTS (92.3fm, Bloomington) welcomes Paul Mendenhall to mornings.
Also, Brad Holtz shifts to afternoons, while Ian Shane flips from weekends
to nights. Also, Brooke Butler and Natalie Edwards join for weekends.
That's it for this issue. See you in a week!
