Now what?

 

After 24 years as a Modern Rocker, Press Communications has flipped 106.3 WHTG-FM Eatontown, NJ and simulcast partner 106.5 WBBO Bass River Township, NJ to CHR as "Hit 106″. The station is using the satellite-fed "Hits Now!" format from Dial Global Networks.

For many years, WHTG as "FM 106.3″ was considered one of the most influential Alternative stations in the nation under then-PD Matt Pinfield. The station was sold to Press Communications in 2000 and relaunched as "G106.3″ and later "G-Rock Radio".

 

What a crappy end to a crappy Monday.

Oh, this won't due. cwm13.gif Not at all.

 

There is another new station around 101.9 or thereabouts, but nothing close to 106.3. I've been listening to them, and the ones before them, for close to 20 years.

 

This sucks.

Well at least KoQ understands.

It was on this morning, the DJ was talking about being on mornings the rest of the week. I wonder if they had any idea?

I guess they had to do something since only me and Mike were listening.frown.gif

View PostOr save some $$ and get Slacker instead.

 

Did you buy one of the Slacker players or do you use a Blackberry? It looks like a replacement to the horrible stations available here.

I bought one of the G1 portable players that Woot was clearing out for $45. I also use the webplayer quite a bit. They just released a client for the iphone too.
