A hat tip to my friends up in Northeastern Ohio at Ohio Media Watch for this bit...as I received it from them via email this evening!
Seems WLW-AM 700 is no longer carried on XM Satellite Radio channel 173 as of this past Friday. WCPO has the story here.
Of course, WLW has a blowtorch signal anyway, at 50,000 watts, so much of the eastern US won't lose The Big One. But, this means anybody that can't get the station over air, no longer has the Satellite Radio option available to them and now has to listen on the station's website.
It sounds to us as if the Clear Channel pursestrings may have had something to do with it...stay tuned, if we get any information, we'll let you know!
