Bonneville-Washington Post Radio in DC may be gone by Labor Day


That’s what multiple DC area media outlets are forecasting. The year-and-a-half all-news partnership with the paper may be gone, or at least changed to a hybrid after Labor Day, when syndicated programming is added to WTWP-FM-AM DC. We already know TRN’s Phil Hendrie is coming on board, but it’s been reported that Bonneville will continue a non-Post radio talker on the station as soon as 9/4, with nationally syndicated personalities. "Only a handful of time slots will be locally-produced," said local site DCRTV.

RBR observation: We still think Spanish language is the way to go. WTWP-FM’s signal covers Northern Virginia suburbs south of the beltway very well—an area rich with Spanish-speaking immigrants, and an area not well covered by the only Spanish language FM in the region—CBS Radio’s WLZL-FM Annapolis.
