The long battle between two low-power FM stations in the COLUMBUS, OH area over time-sharing on 102.1 FM has finally been settled, reports the COLUMBUS DISPATCH.
Under the agreement, BEXLEY PUBLIC RADIO's WCRX-LP will use the frequency 3a-3p (ET), while the NEIGHBOR NETWORK's WCRS-LP will be on the air 3p-3a. The stations, two of five stations alloted the frequency, had been battling over the hours abandoned by the other three stations that never signed on the air.
While they fought, WCRX aired two hours a day and WCRS was on the air for five hours.
