The purchase of WOR-AM by Clear Channel is still pending.
I vaguely remember reading that Clear Channel might start its operations under a lease (called an LMA) October 1st. I just read the LMA at the FCC and it says it runs for up to 12 months, and ends when the FCC approves the sale and it closes (the money changes hands). Curiously, it has a cutout from 6-8 AM on Sundays, which Buckley would continue to program while Clear Channel runs the station.
The Presumption is that Clear Chanel’s WOR will pick up the Premiere Talk syndication – Beck, Limbaugh, Hannity – they already carry Coast to Coast, but with the WGST change I’m not so sure. Maybe they’ll run NBC Sports, at least part of the day….
The barely existing WOR Radio Network will probably end.
