SYRACUSE -- Many wondered how Rush Limbaugh's death earlier this year might impact talk radio. But it doesn't seem to be an issue for Newsradio 570 & 106.9 WSYR.

SYRACUSE -- After almost a year off the air, low-power analog television station WMBO-LP is back, reports a CNYRadio.com and CNYTVNews.com reader who used to run his own local media website. Since the station is transmitting on analog TV channel 6, the audio can be heard with an ordinary radio at 87.7 FM.
SYRACUSE -- Since the day MOViN 100.3/96.5 (WMVN) launched, the 96.5 translator (W243AB) covering downtown Syracuse was actually not owned by its parent station's owner. But that's recently changed, as MOViN' owner Craig Fox has purchased the translator outright.
SYRACUSE -- There's new information tonight on what's going on with that 105.1 signal that's been off the air since the station's sale from Aloha Stations Trust to Foxfur Communications closed on May 1st. Co-owner Sam Furco tells CNYRadio.com 105.1 will reclaim the WVOA call letters it held for 20 years.
Updated 5/6 at 8:30pm - SYRACUSE -- There was no programming on 105.1 by the end of Tuesday, as we were originally led to believe, but we have official confirmation that the station will simulcast WVOA's "Love Radio" format when it returns to the airwaves.
