Contract talks “going south” are not uncommon. That’s reportedly the reason why the Quinn & Rose Morning Show is no longer on WPGB-FM (104.7). Many listeners here in Pittsburgh and in the markets where the programs were syndicated via Clear Channel, woke up this morning surprised by the move. Apparently some of the affiliates were just as surprised as the listeners! So what’s next? Stay tuned. I wouldn’t be surprised if Quinn decides to use warroom.com as his broadcast outlet thereby making the program a web-only program. But that’s purely speculation. Meanwhile the Bloomdaddy show from Wheeling’s WWVA-AM (1170) was being aired in place of Quinn & Rose.
Meanwhile, those eager for Christmas music will be pleased to know that WSHH (99.7) and WWSW (94.5) have both flipped to their Christmas formats as of this morning. We kind of figured that while the stations would wait until the week of Pittsburgh’s Light-Up Night, we didn’t think it would be this early!
