Thread: Is anger about proposed tolls helping WTIC

    Is anger about proposed tolls helping WTIC

    WTIC jumped from the 5s to a 7.3 in March, landing at number 3. Lots of talk mid-mornings and afternoons talk about proposed toll legislation.

    New UCONN affiliate WUCS can't even get a 2, however this was the third consecutive losing season for the men.

    WUCS should improve with Yankee games now being counted. The UConn deal I think is a huge failure for them.

    WUCS also has a crappy signal. I imagine they'd get higher ratings if they were on a full-market signal - i.e. 105.9 rather than the crappy 97.9 signal.

    Tune into The Freestyle Lives Show hosted by Richie Rich Sunday Nights 6PM-8PM (Eastern) on La Mega 101.7 (910) in Hartford, La Mega 94.9 (890) in Boston, and La Mega 95.1 (1400) in Lawrence.

    Why couldn't iheartradio keep 104.1 ? They get rid of that strong signal to bring in weak 97.9 Makes no sense. Could just have 104.1 ESPN Radio Hartford.

    They had to sell the channel to get under the cap.

    I haven't listened to WTIC in years. It was once my favorite station, but it was taken over by the right wing.

    The station was put in to the Aloha Trust when Bain Capital acquired Clearchannel. The reason was that with an ownership change they were no longer grandfathered in with regard to how much of the market they could own. It's not just the number of stations that they look at. It's also the amount of revenue and/or percentage of audience they "own". By putting 104.1 in the trust and moving UCS to Hartford they became compliant, but didn't lose the number of stations they had in the market.

    April, released today...

    WTIC-AM up again, this time to a 7.6. I'm sure talk about the tolls and the start of the regular Red Sox season is helping.

    WTIC-FM way up to an 8.5.

    WDRC-FM up to a 6.0.

    WRCH is still #1, but with a 9.8.

    Glad to see the CT toll petition with plus 100 thousand signatures hit the Governors desk.Or the round file basket in his office...
    Thanks goes out to WTIC for the push........


    I always say full time sports/news format on FM are a waste but they will be fine on the stations digital channels.Or stay on AM.
