Bach, Beethoven & Baseball?


Recommended Posts

Bach, Beethoven & Baseball - 7/23 - This is not a joke. If DC gets a baseball team, DCRTV hears there have been discussions at Bonneville about a "radical move" which would put baseball on Classical 103.5, WGMS, and bill it as "Bach, Beethoven and baseball." It would be heavily promoted on co-owned all-news WTOP and hot adult contemporary Z104. Joel Oxley runs all three of Bonneville's DC stations.....

The shift towards FM continues in baseball towns without strong AM stations.


This is DC, not Sticksville, Oklahoma


Sticksville, Oklahoma has better AM reception at night than Washington, DC does.


WMAL won't carry the games, so FM may be the way to go in Washington. Redskins are on WJFK-FM and the O's, Caps, and Wiz are on WTEM-AM.




WGMS has a good signal and should cover Washington fine. The network would have affiliates anyway, so an FM is fine. WTEM has the O's radio contract and may not be happy picking up the new DC team with Clear Channel handling the O's Radio network. WTEM is also very crowded and baseball would require a large commitment.
