In May 2012, Clear Channel started simulcasting its top-rated political talk station, WFLA-AM (970) on an FM translator at 105.9.
Now, according to media writer Eric Deggans at tampabay.com, it’s moved ahead with plans to put WDAE on the FM dial as well, with a signal that reached St. Petersburg. Both changes are a relatively quick way to get Clear Channel’s AM talk stations on the FM dial without the expense and risk of converting an existing FM station to a talk format.
Rival Cox Radio has seen tremendous success converting
WHPT-FM (The Bone 102.5) into an all-talk format. WDAE’s move also increases competition for
another rival, CBS Radio’s Sportsradio 98.7 the Fan, a station which has seen a
series of staff changes since debuting last August.
