I am never critical of Mr Feder, but the first line is in poor taste, even if the following line says it is not him stating it.
Donít worry, Me-TV FM fans. Your favorite soft-rock oldies station wonít be going away. At least thatís the word from Venture Technologies Group, which owns the license for WRME 87.7-FM, the low-power analog station on VHF Channel 6 leased by Chicago-based Weigel Broadcasting as the home of Me-TV FM. On Monday the FCC reaffirmed July 13, 2021, as the deadline for all low-power Channel 6 TV stations operating as radio stations on 87.7 FM to cease broadcasting. (Here is the link.) ďWe have a solution and [are] moving forward,Ē Paul Koplin, CEO of Venture Technologies Group, told me. The company is in the process of converting its Channel 6 stations (including those in Chicago, Los Angeles, San Diego, San Jose and elsewhere) to digital with an analog audio carrier imbedded in the signal. ďWe have submitted technical studies to the FCC to demonstrate how this works, and stations in several markets are converting right now,Ē Koplin said. Neal Sabin, vice chair of Weigel Broadcasting and creator of Me-TV FM, said simply: ďPlease stand by.Ē In the latest Nielsen Audio survey, Me-TV FM posted an impressive 3.0 percent audience share, ranking 12th overall.
