A Fly In Sinclair’s Ointment

FCC chairman Pai announced an administrative law judge would review the station spinoff issues in the pending Sinclair-Tribune deal. The FCC takes that step when companies fail to persuade it that a transaction, even with conditions, would be in the public interest. This procedure killed the Comcast-Time Warner cable deal a few years back. Stay tuned…THE SOUND 94.1 KSWD is a format niche that needed filling in Seattle. Hearing lots of positive comments about the station. Presentation and liners reminiscent of Entercom’s KBRD (Beautiful Music format) in the late 1980s. Entercom stations are found on the RADIO.COM platform, previously the home of CBS Radio stations. Competitor iHeart has their own app for that. iHeart.com also offers a subscription service for listener playlists, which computer geeks might stream to audio editing software. These songs could then be transferred to iPhones, iPads or stand-alone mp3 players. Jist sayin’.
