ITHACA/CORTLAND -- WHCU is among several new affiliates airing "The Wall Street Journal this Morning with Gordon Deal," according to a report published Wednesday. The news/talk station, owned by Saga Communications, is one of ten new affiliates for the 30-minute show, which airs locally at 5:30 weekday mornings.
According to AllAccess.com, the show was also recently added by stations in places like Kansas City, Grand Rapids, and Chattanooga. The Wall Street Journal Radio Network says the show covers everything "from breaking news to in-depth interviews and business news analysis."
Previously, WHCU carried "First Light with Dirk Van" for the 30 minutes preceeding the locally-produced "Morning Newswatch with Dave Vieser and Geoff Dunn."
Minor clarification - WSJ This Morning is a 5 hour-long program usually offered in one-hour blocks. WHCU 870/95.9 airs it at 5:00am before the Morning Newswatch comes on at 5:30am.
A side note, WSJ This Morning briefly aired on sister station WNYY 1470 for the full 5:00a hour. According to the station website, it still airs the similar offering WSJ This Weekend on Sundays at 7:00am.
