Indiana RadioWatch: December 4, 2017
Where Are They Now? For nearly 15 years, former WBYR/WFWI OM Jim Fox has worked in Sacramento, California, rising to Entercom's VP/Programming for that cluster. Entercom will transfer Mr. Fox to their Dallas, Texas cluster at the beginning of 2018. There, Mr. Fox will be VP/Programming for the Dallas cluster, along with PD of two radio stations.
Moody Radio's WGNR (1470am, Anderson) modifies its proposed translator to eliminate a mutual exclusivity with another translator application from Woof Boom Radio's WHBU (1240am, Anderson). Both stations applied for 101.3 in Anderson; WGNR's revised application is for 101.1 from a site to the southwest near Pendleton. This whole move became possible when the FCC changed the 25 mile rule for translators.
Nexstar's CW affiliate/WISH-TV (Channel 8, Indianapolis) Noon and early evening anchor David Barras retired, after 37 years with the TV station. Mr. Barras joined the WISH-TV in 1980 as a weekend assignment editor and reporter.
That's all for this issue. Thank you for your continued support.
