LPFMs Dominate New Call Sign List

Also, Salem’s 1260 in Boston will be WBIX

Anyone in radio who has received notice of an official call sign for a new station knows that the day can be exciting.

More than 50 low-power stations had the experience in June. The FCC has published its latest Media Bureau Call Sign actions. From WJUZ(LP) in Meridianville, Ala., to KZCL(LP) in Cleveland, Texas, more and more LPFMs are learning their official names as the low-power service continues to undergo its large-scale expansion.

Also in the Media Bureau list for the last 30 days are a number of new full-power stations including KZQM(FM) in Sequim, Wash.; KPQT(FM) in Hamlin, Texas; and KQBD(FM) in Bunker, Mo.

And of note is that AM call sign WBIX is being reserved for Salem to use on 1260 in Boston, as it acquires the Radio Disney station currently called WMKI(AM).
