Bonneville D.C. Shuffle: 3WT Out, WFED To 1500
August 11, 2008 at 11:08 AM (PT)
BONNEVILLE "3WT" Talk simulcast WWWT-A-F/WASHINGTON and WWWB-A/FREDERICK will drop the format this FALL in a realignment of the cluster's simulcasts. Sister News WFED-A (FEDERAL NEWS RADIO)/WASHINGTON will move to WWWT-A's 1500 AM signal and WWWB-A's 820 AM signal and will retain the WASHINGTON NATIONALS broadcasts presently on 3WT.
WWWT-F, which is heard on 107.7 FM in NORTHERN VIRGINIA, will simulcast News WTOP, which it previously did when WTOP was on 1500 AM, although the NATIONALS games will also be heard on 107.7 FM through the 2009 season.
The move also answers the question of whether TONY KORNHEISER would return to 3WT after his MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL duties for ESPN end this WINTER; KORNHEISER will not be returning to the stations.
