KQV (1410) went silent as the ball dropped in the Eastern Time Zone on January 1. So too did the webstream at KQV.com, or so we thought. At various but inconsistent times since the station signed off, listeners have picked up Bloomberg programming on the webstream. The website also continues to update the AP Wire. Will doing so create an element of life for the station’s potential buyers? Stay tuned!

  1. I just hear hiss, like a dead carrier on the stream. Hey, maybe the station will become an internet broadcaster instead, now that it doesn’t have to worry about its AM station.

    I have to admit that maybe I’m part of the problem with KQV, I’d never been to their site before a few moments ago, and listened to it more in the last week in December than I had in years, which amounted to a couple of hours at most.

    I think when people look back to their top-40 era, it’s an emotional bond to something they were connected with and that was exciting to hear, a one on one relationship with the DJs and the music they played. You can’t put a price on someone who that makes you laugh, or a song that’s played on the radio and your school prom, and you remember it throughout your life. People feel like they’re losing a part of themselves with the loss of KQV.

    I guess for a die-hard news fan, losing KQV would be hard, but I think for most people, news is seen as a public service as its needed, like a traveler’s station on the highway, or a weather station, not a place for stardom or adoration, or, “Oh wow, that’s the station that brought The Beatles to town!”

    I’d like to know what news fans think about the station closing, let’s see a journalist do some interviews and write about it!
