    1360 HOMER will be moving down the dial...

    Clear Channel swaps local programming
    The "Sports Animal" has chased Jerry Springer out of his home at WCKY-AM 1530.

    Clear Channel Communications Inc. will move its sports-talk programming, known as "Homer" and the "Sports Animal," from WSAI-AM 1360 to the 1530 dial position. That will give the sports-talk format a 50,000-watt broadcast signal, 10 times more powerful than the current home of Clear Channel sports talkers Tom Gamble, Richard Skinner and Lance McAlister.

    Clear Channel's "progressive talk" format, now on WCKY, will move to WSAI, effective July 7. The move means a weaker signal for the liberal talk show hosts that now populate WCKY, including former Cincinnati Mayor Jerry Springer, comedian Al Franken and other national feeds from Air America.

    "Homer's always done well, whether it be ratings or revenue," said Clear Channel Program Director Darryl Parks, Clear Channel's local director of AM operations. "We just figured we can maximize it," with the signal boost, he said.

    Homer has the broadcast rights for the Cincinnati Bengals and recently became the radio home of University of Kentucky basketball. It also is the local affiliate for Fox Sports Radio.

    It is one of eight radio stations operated in Cincinnati by Clear Channel Communications Inc. (NYSE: CCU), a global media and entertainment company based in San Antonio, Texas.

    This gets a HUGE from me!!!!

    50,000 watts means I can listen to the Sports Animal here at home, two hours from Cincinnati.

    Does this rekindle speculation that the Reds are leaving the Big One?

    The Reds aren't going anywhere.

    So, 980 the Sports Animal in Dayton might just have been rendered obsolete.

    Any mention anywhere if this move has an effect on the Sports Animal affiliation with 980-WONE up here in Dayton?

    Probably... all the simualcasting was done because of the weak signal.

    Actually they are moving up the dial. Also, the preachers have a time buy contract on 1530 for overnight. No "Sports Animal" around the clock.

    I hope no live sports programs go past midnight, Eastern Time.

    Clear Channels owns WLW and they other two stations.

    There were laws against what they have now, but that was changed.

    Why? The Bengals are already on 50K watt WLW, right (and 92.5 and 104.7...)?
