    1360am Cedar Rapids

    One day it was the Fox Sports Radio. Next day it is classic country. What is up?

    Re: 1360am Cedar Rapids

    When a station changes formats, it's because it's not working from a financial sense. Radio is about advertising revenues. They must feel that they can attract more listeners and thus more advertising dollars playing country music.

    The lesson to be learned here is if you have a local station which you listen to and enjoy, it would be in your best interest to 1) patronize those who advertise on that station, and 2) be sure to tell them that you do so because of where they spend their advertising dollars.

    Have no fear, even though they now have country music on, they will still carry Coe Kohawk football in the fall.

    My sister works at wmt which is under the same clear channel management as 1360, and she has no clue why they switched it. For some reason clear channel felt the market needed another country station, so they now own two in the market and have next to no listeners on either station and are getting their behinds handed to them by KHAK.

    No format is going to work at 1360 unless they increase their power. Seriously, you can buy a pink Barbie walkie-talkie at Walmart that has more range than 1360.

    ****** me off too ... its always a juggle to get either 1360 or 1650 (both fox sports) but I could usually get one or the other.

    Now if 1650 is static I'm locked into listening to espn radio AND the commercials - damndamndamn

    BS. 1460 and 1600 in Des Moines have the range of 2 blocks and they still get people to listen.

    Not much they can do about that with 1350 on the dial in Des Moines.

    Oh and it could be worse, there's a reason why i'm bumping this thread, at least Cedar Rapids has 1 sports station on the dial, Lincoln, NE lost their only sports radio outleft today when the station changed formats to Oldies.
