CHICAGO RADIO AND MEDIA reports that less than one year after it started, HUBBARD RADIO WTMX-HD2/CHICAGO has dropped the simulcast of RICK O'DELL's Smooth Jazz/Smooth AC format on FRIDAY, DECEMBER 5th. "It has been replaced, at least temporarily, by an all-Jazz CHRISTMAS format. The new station is not being operated by HUBBARD RADIO/CHICAGO, but rather by a new radio company with a controversial background, which is in turn, broadcasting that station on a new translator."
The report notes that, "WINDY CITY BROADCASTING, a new company formed this year, approached HUBBARD BROADCASTING about leasing out WTMX-HD2. They are using the HD station to have radio content they can then stream on at least one of the translators they purchased this year."
