No More Salsa with CKWX

Postby jon » Sun Dec 11, 2011 8:01 pm

The Portland Radio board is reporting that KPWX-1130 has dropped Spanish language programming for Russian! Apparently, they weren't happy with their 0.6-0.8 SHARE numbers.

All of which should give a different flavour to News 1130 near sunrise and sunset.

For those who haven't heard it yet, the Portland board had it right. The Oregon station on 1130 is now All Russian, All the Time.

Driving home here in Edmonton less than half an hour after local sunset, long before West Coast sunset, KPWX was often burying CKWX, to the point where some periods of time you could not hear anything in the background (KPWX was all spoken word at the time) from WX at all.
