Chicago's Score To Get FM HD-3 Simulcast
June 8, 2009 at 6:01 AM (PT)
Could CHICAGO be the next to see a CBS RADIO conversion of a Sports AM to the FM dial? The CHICAGO SUN-TIMES' LEWIS LAZARE reports that CBS Sports WSCR-A (670 THE SCORE) will begin to air on the HD-3 multicast channel of sister Adult Hits WJMK (104.3 JACK FM) within 30 days but cites "sources familiar with developments" in suggesting that the SCORE might move to a full simulcast on WJMK's analog and HD signals.
Such a move, were it to take place, would echo CBS' moves in DETROIT (where WXYT-A launched an FM simulcast as 97.1 THE TICKET and ratings soared), BALTIMORE (where Talk WHFS became Sports WJZ-F), and DALLAS (where CBS launched KRLD-F (105.3 THE FAN)).
