Thread: WXNY's Future

    If Univision exits radio, perhaps WXNY 96.3 would be sold off separately, as it has done rather poorly in the ratings with Spanish programming. Maybe EMF would be interested in buying the station and flipping it to K-Love, and putting Air1 on its less powerful 96.7 signal. That would give them adjacent dial positions for their two Christian music formats.

    Whatever other considerations would be involved, finances would be doable. The WNYC Foundation is one of, if not the richest, operator in the tristate region.

    Then you might also consider the sale of 105.9 as another cost reducing factor.

    However, it will likely stay in commercial hands.

    In a break with format, X96.3 is carrying play by play coverage (in Spanish, of course) of the World Cup matches, hosted by famous soccer commentator Andres Cantor. Oddly, station owner Univision's rival Telemundo has the TV rights, this time. It also seems a bit strange that sister station WADO AM, which is primarily devoted to sports (soccer), is not providing live coverage of the games.
