Speaking of WKOX, the Boston Herald is again claiming the station is about to go 50 kilowatts, and could become a Bloomberg business outlet. Inasmuch as WKOX has no valid construction permit for such an increase, NERW is taking that report with caution.
Whither Langer's other station, WRPT (1050 Peterborough NH, with an application to become 650 Ashland MA)? Nobody knows...but NERW would be unsurprised to find something showing up on 650 by this weekend to keep the license afloat.
We're told that WEAV (960 Plattsburgh NY) has escaped the deadline by returning to the air as a simulcast of a Burlington VT station - and if any of our readers in the Champlain Valley know which one it is, we'd love to know too.
As for WAUB (1590 Auburn NY) and WSCP (1070 Sandy Creek NY) - they were still silent when the NERW-mobile drove through Central New York last weekend. The clock is ticking - and anything that's still dark on Sunday loses its license for good. We'll have the list in the next NERW.
