    NBC News Radio Top-Of-The Hour newscasts on iHeartRadio stations.

    Have there been any iHeart Radio stations that have already been using the new NBC service yet for top-of-the hour newscasts that they promised in the press releases?

    IHeart's WGST (640) in Atlanta carries NBC news at the TOH.
    Not many people know this but NBC was the first to build a radio network back in 1926. This was a year after AT&T set up a temporary network to carry the Coolidge inauguration.

    AT&T was one of the original partners in NBC, and their owned radio station, WEAF, became NBC's flagship station in NYC.

    I vaguely remember that now that you mention it.
    IHeart's Nashville WLAC (1510) carries Fox News.

    WLW somewhat reunited with NBC for a few things, but still uses ABC for breaking news and news cuts for the most part. No network TOH news and dropped the ABC sounder from their own some time ago

    I thought WKRC 550 in Cincy was running the NBC news hourly.
    "Its music what makes a radio station, and at Live FM, we play the last music around."
    After receiving that copy, I quit the VO industry.
