    WRCA 1330 going off the air temporarily

    The other board which we're not allowed to link to on here is reporting WRCA 1330 is going off the air temporarily as they prepare to move 1330's studios to the building with the other Beasley stations they just acquired from Greater Boston Media and get ready to build their FM translator at 106.1FM.

    Any speculation on format flip when the FM signs on, or will it stay leased ethnic?

    It will most definitely not be leased ethnic, since all of the programmers have been ousted. CCM, Urban AC and Spanish Tropical (on FM) are all missing from the market, but nothing has leaked as to what Beasley's plan is.

    Jockless True Oldies, Mike, ESPN Desportes. BTW, the other radio board said that they will be off the air for at least 30 days so they can move in with the other stations at former Greater Media studios, and get their new Fm 106.1 transmitter in place at top of Pru.

    30 days plus?

    to do what?

    The translator has nothing to do with the AM operation, the Waltham studios are garbage, and rumor has it there is an extra studio over on Morrisey Blvd just waiting for them....

    The only good reason for them to be off for 30 days is that the tower site or transmitter /antenna is complete garbage and is in need of major work.

    I thought they were over with WUNR and another AM 1200 on that relatively new ( 10 years?) site in Newton IIRC.

    Grady Moates was the WRCA CE at the time.... Grady does not build junk, a 10 year old Grady install, even of that complexity should last for 100 years.

    Something else is going on, it makes no sense to take it down for 30 days for something that could be done in 30 seconds

    Could the lease be up at the existing 1330 studios? Shutting down on the 15th of the month gives a nice window to move the good stuff (of which it doesn't sound like there's much) over to Morrissey Blvd.

    But agreed. Surprised they're not just simulcasting one of the Beasley FMs for a few weeks while they sort out the future.

    It's fine to mention the other board here .... Radio Insight.
    For obvious reasons, providing links to their site is discouraged.

    I nearly posted this yesterday when I read it on The FCC CDBS. https://licensing.fcc.gov/cgi-bin/ws...&fac_num=60695
    I didn't see it on Radio Insight, but this in all probability is where they got the info.
