Some NA station updates

830 WCRN Worcester (MA). There’s a new tower up in Massachusetts. Carter Broadcasting’s WCRN put up a new fourth tower at it’s transmitter site, and with the tower up and a new ground system in place, “True Talk 830” is almost ready to boost its night power from its present 5 kW to 50 kW – just in time for Red Sox opening day, as the station becomes the Sox affiliate for Worcester and much of the Metro West region, where new flagship WRKO (680) doesn’t reach well after dark
1140 CBI Sydney. CBC has applied to move CBI to FM, on 97.1, with 100 kW DA/123 m. If the move is granted, and once the various other AM-to-FM moves that the CRTC has approved (including CHER 950 Sydney) are carried out, Sydney will be left with only CJCB (1270) on AM.
1250 WNEM Bridgeport (MI) now NEWS, was TALK.
1340 WMDR Augusta (ME). On March 2, the “God’s Country” Christian country format now heard on WMDR will move to WMDR-FM (88.9 Oakland) and its translators in Portland, Freeport and Bangor, displacing the “Zap” Christian rock format now heard there. There’s no word yet on what will show up as a new format on 1340.
1460 WJCP North Vernon (IN) now C&W, was OLD.
1600 WBTO Linton (IN) goes silent.
1660 WDAF Kansas City (KS), fair signals with Classical music. “Classical 1660”. New call sign (ex-KXTR), same format so far.

    WEW St. Louis, MO, 770. carries Spanish in the morning and afternoon local time.
    “… desea anunciarse en nuestra estación, tiene que marcar el 314 772 6368, Radio Cucui, la mera mera de San Luís”.
