Talking Stick Communications' W259BJ (99.7fm, Warsaw) simulcasts News/WRSW(AM) (1480am, Warsaw). The W259BJ antenna is on top of the former Little Crow Foods building in Warsaw. That building will be demolished and renovated. Accordingly, Talking Stick filed an STA with the FCC to move their antenna to a pole at the "News Now Warsaw" studios on West Market Street in downtown Warsaw.


WFYI Public Media adds Matt Shafer Powell as chief content officer. Mr. Powell last worked for 14 years as Director of News Content and Executive Producer at WUOT-FM in Knoxville, Tennessee. Mr. Powell also serves on the Board of Public Radio News Directors, Inc., and leads that organization's training initiatives.

Zakk Babb joins Entercom's CHR/WZPL (99.5fm, Greenfield) in PM drive and as imaging director. Mr. Babb also voicetracks for Entercom sister WSTR in Atlanta, Georgia. Before joining WSTR, Mr. Babb worked in afternoons across town at Cumulus' Rhythmic CHR/WRWM (93.9fm, Lawrence).

That's all for this issue. Thank you for your continued support.
