WNEW in Maryland and D.C.? WHFS in Florida?
Those are among the outcomes of format changes reflected in the latest list of call letter moves at the Federal Communications Commission.
(CBS, as we’ve reported, shortly will launch a news format in the D.C. area. Call letter hounds can follow the consequences below, as an FM in Florida that most recently held the legendary WNEW call sign becomes WHFS. Maryland AM station WHFS becomes WNEW(AM), while nearby WLZL(FM) becomes WNEW(FM). Thus CBS will have a WNEW on both AM and FM in the Washington market.)
From Nov. 26 to Dec. 30, the FCC accepted these applications to assign or change call signs.
