Former WPTT-TV (22) (Now WPMY) owner Eddie Edwards has told the Pittsburgh Courier newspaper, “Don’t be surprised if I announce that I have negotiated a deal to buy a property and put a black radio station back on the air.” Edwards thinks he could be announcing a deal as early as next week. He says he was doing fine in retirement, but it made him angry when the Davenport family sold WAMO-AM/FM and WPGR-AM and nobody was doing anything about replacing them. Local station broker Ray Rosenblum confirms to Tom Taylor that Eddie Edwards is a doer – not just a talker.
Meanwhile, Scott Fybush says WLTJ-FM (92.9) has attempted to fill the void by going urban AC in the evening hours. “Q in the City” is being hosted by former WAMO-FM Program Director Tracey Lee and they hope to pick up some loyal WAMO listeners.
