Thread: Entercom Names Which of Possible Stations It Will Divest in L.A.

    A little off topic, but... many postings here talk about the "poor" signal of 100.3. That's a bit misleading. It's on Mt. Wilson, and one of only a few FM stations that come in pretty well here in San Diego, 120 miles away. Yes, signal strength is not quite as good as KRTH or KBIG. But it's very listenable in the car, and wattage is not that far below KIIS or KOST, two stations perennially among the top 5 in L.A. ratings. 100.3 also has a much better signal here than KPWR, which runs more power from essentially the same transmitter site. So, I think 100.3 covers L.A. just fine, thank you.

    Back in the day before the Valley floor became crowded, KIQQ/KQLZ boomed into Bakersfield and the Southern San Joaquin Valley floor solidly and consistently. That's 120 miles plus a steep drop in elevation over terrian.

    Hopefully, under Entercom's ownership, the ratings abortion known as KROQ can be turned around.

    However, one look to San Diego provides extremely little hope. FM 94/9's ratings are in the toilet. That station has been a disaster for years - with only brief glimpses of moderate ratings success.

    It depends on which station Entercom spins in Los Angeles, which I hope is 100.3 The Sound.

    Someone pointed out a potential flip for 94.9 to Sports since they got a deal from the Padres to broadcast their games. However, I think the most likely station to get blown up by Entercom in San Diego is Energy 103.7, because its ratings are far below Channel 93.3 and Z90.3.

    103.7 has been a disaster for quite a while. From The Planet, to FM Talk with Adam Carolla, to Sophie and now Energy. They can't seem to find a format that lasts more than a couple years with this signal.

    A.J. Machado may move over to KYXY as their new morning host after CBS Radio laid off Jeff and the Showgram, and Entercom will likely flip Energy 103.7 to a new format when the merger closes.

    Back when 100.3 was KIQQ (early 1980s), their antenna was in a different location: the tower above Beverly Hills. That would have given them an almost straight shot toward Bakersfield.

    Way back when 100.3 was KIQQ, their tower was in a different location (above Beverly Hills), giving them a fairly direct shot towards Bakersfield. They moved to Mt. Wilson in 1981 or 1982.
