Good News Station? -AM, FM, Satellite, doesn't Matter!
February 12, 2018
AM radio looks like it's on it's way out. More and more AM stations are going dark. This is because there are so many superior choices out there.
I do believe that if there is a reliable news station, that is news all the time, it could survive in a changing radio market.
In 2012 when Hurricane Sandy hit New Jersey, we lost power for more than a week. We had no access to any news in the outside world. I relied totally on 1010 WINS, the news station in New York City. They provided me all the information I needed during this very trying time. It didn't matter that WINS was an AM station, they were a consistent, reliable resource to us during this period. Today WINS is one of the top stations in New York City. Kudos to them .
