Galaxy Communications has decided not to pursue an earlier decision this year to wrestle 95X (WAQX) for radio broadcast rights to Syracuse University sports. Galaxy owner Ed Levine says without a decision by SU at this point, Galaxy wouldn't have enough time to put together an effective advertising and promotional campaign.
Levine had hoped to lure play-by-play rights away from Citadel's 95X and WNSS 1260 AM for airing on TK-99.
Citadel Communications operations manager for Syracuse, Tom Mitchell, says they are close to re-signing a deal with Syracuse University.
