No offense to any of the on air personalties - but this new station sucks bad!!!
F*** this station and the owner, 1010 WINS will kick this station's ass and getting rid of the only decent radio station, RXP, was a bad move, even as it was slowly building up ratings.
Nobody is happy about this. RXP was the only station worth listing too. What makes you think people want to hear more of this CRAP!
It's about time New York got news back on the FM dial. The last one I remember was WNWS-FM (the old WNBC-FM). I think once they launch CBS Radio will regret not taking one of their FM stations and making the flip. I know I won't invest in an HD radio just to hear CBS news on 101.1's HD sub channel.I for onem, am looking forward to the format flip. Ever since they took jazz off of 101.9 it's the worst thing on the dial as far as I'm concerned.
Ridiculous! 2 all-news stations on AM, with countless news-talk stations, and a worthless FM dial in NY. We desperately needed another news station in this town and tying up an FM frequency -- not. And what is amazing is how 104.3 can play the same crap over and over daily and succeed. RXP needed tweaking to make it work, but at least you could hear some new music there. Creativity is gone...I would have been happy with a Country station if only the media buyers in this town would allow it to succeed. The industry is dead...very sad.
This is an extremely odd move on behalf of these people. There aren't a lot of all news or news/talk stations on the FM dial, and there haven't been in the past either. Isn't the 50,000 watt WCBS 880, 1010 WINS and the also 50,000 watt WOR 710 enough competition? I guess not for a city and metro area of 19,000,000 people... The uncalled for cancellation of the alternative rock format leaves WAXQ Q104.3 with very little other competition.
According to my count, there are now 281 FM stations doing news/talk or all news (that doesn't count Sports Talk).Pandora, Last.FM, Slacker, etc... are drying up music on FM. Playing music on a radio station no longer drives people to buy music when they have no moral objecting to "sharing" it.So Talk radio is moving on to FM. AM stations are also picking up FM translators (low power FM repeaters) which the FCC blessed last year. The FM band is going to fill up with Rush Limbaugh clones and ESPN. AM radio will become the desert of religious broadcasters and non-English language stations. That's the future of radio.
You took away a GREAT rock station to give us this filth??? You DO NOT belong on our NYC radio dial. Your frat boy CEO has just guaranteed that you will all be out of work by the new year. BRING BACK ROCK 101.9 RXP!!
