This is total insanity, another HUGE terrestrial station down the drain.
Howard just talked about the death of another one of his former affiliate stations on Monday and now one of his former channels in one of the biggest markets (Boston) is down the drain. I am sure he will talk about this tomorrow.
If WBCN can not survive, terrestrial radio as we once knew it is dead. 2 Years ago there were 3 rock stations in Boston.... one was consolidated into another and now WBCN is gone... we are down to 1 new rock station. INSANE! Before I switched to Sirius 5 years ago there were 5 rock stations programed on my cars radio... now there is only 1 left.
If anyone else here is from mass you can attest to this madness for the other people around the country on these boards. Trust me guys, this is a real shocker. UPDATE: check out the number of comments pouring in on that article... its more than when they had a story about the H1N1 Pig Flu the day the news broke... that should give you an idea about how shocking this is.
What is really interesting is "WBCN will become a Web-only operation available at www.wbcn.com." ?!?!? They will go off the air but continue online? How could they possibly sustain a following?
