Clear Channel apparently has backed-off plans to program a mid-town Manhattan translator and has suspended programming at 106.3 FM.
claims to have contacted the FCC earlier this week with a complaint about interference from the translator. CC doesn’t own the translator but has been programming audio on it using its iHeartRadio formats. Some has suspected CC would eventually start airing a Smooth Jazz format on the translator.

In a website update, WKMK Thunder Country told it listeners:
We are pleased to announce that the radio station that had been causing interference since last Thursday May 5, 2011 to our Thunder 106 signal in NJ,
Manhattan, Long Island, Staten Island, Brooklyn and Queens, has suspended operations.
Accordingly, you should no longer be experiencing any interference issues relative to the Thunder 106 in the communities we have previously been communicating to you. Over the next several weeks we will be meeting with the NYC radio broadcaster in an attempt to help them resolve their interference issues but IN NO WAY will we accept ANY interference to our Thunder 106 signal pattern and your right to receive and enjoy our THUNDER 106 Rockin’ Country Programming.
So again, THANK YOU “THUNDER NATION” FOR YOUR SUPPORT AND FOR YOUR LISTENING LOYALTY to us!
