Spanish-language program to be dropped from WAMB

The Nashville City Paper reports that WAMB-AM 1160 is being sold and that a Spanish-language program will be dropped in the process.

"When radio station WAMB-AM 1160 changes hands next year, the classic big bands will play on – just on a different frequency."

"Barry’s Donelson-based Great Southern Broadcasting Inc. has signed a contract to sell the 50,000-watt frequency license for $5 million to Kansas-based Bott Radio Network, which plans a Christian talk format on AM 1160. Great Southern would retain the call letters WAMB for its adult standards station on 1200. The 1200 frequency offers only a 10,000-watt signal, though Barry said he has a permit to boost it to 50,000 watts."

"'We’ve had a quite a few e-mails, phone calls and letters,' he said, adding that the shift would displace a Spanish radio program that leases time on WKDA."
