We forgot about this happening because Life Intervened (tm by OMW), plus the sad news regarding both Paul Harvey and Al Lewis, but it became official at 12 midnight Saturday night.
WMUB-FM 88.5/Oxford signed off as a Miami University-produced station, en route to becoming a repeater of WVXU-FM 91.7 full-time.
I'm told by Rich Emery (no mistake with the name this time, Rich!) that the station's PD, John Hingsbergen (who does read this blog) did the honors with the signoff of the station, thanking the listeners for their loyalty. (PERSONAL NOTE: Mr. Hingsbergen is a class act, who once stopped by my Personal Thoughts/Observations blog to comment on a personal decision I made after the first of this year. I can't think of anybody better to do the sign-off of WMUB than him. By the way, if you'd like to read some thoughts from him, we're planning to link his blog later today assuming he plans to keep one up.) Unfortunately, I a) am not within range to get WMUB over the air, even as a repeater of WVXU, and b) had, as noted above, forgotten in the midst of the craziness that is Life As Your Tri-State Media Watcher Knows It (tm) to get on the web and find an online stream.
