WEAE (1250) 2.1
KDKA-FM (93.7) 1.0
WBGG (970) 0.3
WXDX (105.9) 6.0
WDVE (102.5) 9.7
KDKA-AM (1020) 9.2


Unless the numbers improve in a hurry, that station will unfortunately be very short lived. Those are abysmal numbers for an FM station. I am able to listen to 93.7 on my Driod and I have enjoyed it so far. It's nice to have some alternatives in Pittsburgh Sports Radio, but the Pittsburgh market is not large enough to support more than one or two sports talk radio stations.

I doubt they pull the plug on it as fast as they did with the Man Station.

agreed with many that ron cook shtinks. also agree with many that 6pm-2am is the best time to listen to the fan. both greg and andrew are very knowledgeable in football, college basketball, and hockey. plus kalena bell is on every 20 minutes.

WBGG needs to get the Czabe back. I like Linnelli, but he's just not pulling it.

I think they need a few more heavy hitter guys. The Ron Cook thing absolutely sucks.

Eddie Crow got fired back in late February. He has made some appearances on the WTAE Sunday evening show.

I downloaded an app named "A Online Radio" from the Droid Market. I then did a search for "93.7" or the "Fan" and eventually found the station. It might take a while for your to find it. I can also listen to ESPN 1250 and KDKA 1020.

Would KDKA FM entertain the thought of stealing MM from the X? Seems thats the only way for a station to have success in that market.

solid, I've been trying to get Bucco games at work (insert nutting sucks here) and they blocked the streaming online, so I'll try this. Thanks :thumb:

found it, good stuff! listening to 1250 now, really good quality.

That's a positive? She sounds like a refugee from the Slippery Rock University radio station.

What would 93.7, Madden, & the drive have to be doing for you to turn on Bendel on the drive home?

Joe Bendel is a joke. I wouldn't feel bad if he lost his job.

I would bet those 970 numbers are from radio's where the dial is broken or they are just too lazy to change the channel.

I don't believe KDKA FM will pull the plug until after football season. They have to give themselves one college/NFL season to see if that helps.
