WMAN-A To Simulcast AM Talk On Two FMs
December 23, 2011 at 10:23 AM (PT)
CLEAR CHANNEL radio has decided to simulcast its Talk format on WMAN-A/MANSFIELD, OH on two FM frequencies, 100.1 and 98.3. According to the MANSFIELD NEWS JOURNAL, the two FMs will change their call letters to WMAN-FM and WWMM, respectively
"The motivation to make these changes is simple," CLEAR CHANNEL's BILL CLARK told the paper. "Younger radio listeners, those under 35, rarely visit the AM band. Most were raised never having been aware that the AM band existed. This gives us the opportunity to expose younger listeners to the spoken word format."
WMAN's lineup mixes local personalities such as RUSTY CATES with syndicated talent the likes of RUSH LIMBAUGH and SEAN HANNITY.
