To cut costs. Its parent company Bell Canada announced last Friday it will cut 4800 jobs.
Would be great to see such diversity added to the Australian market.
I was flicking through US radio stations in the iHeart Radio app the other night and streamed a few (using a VPN… ahem).
Came across a Classic Hits station called 3WS (94.5 in Pittsburgh PA).
Was very surprised to see an Australian style callsign used in America.
There is also a Triple M over there too! See below, also a rock station by the looks of it (didn’t listen to it though).
I bet their Triple M would be a better rock station, which is depressing.
I think the 3WS is actually WWSW as the callsign. Or it was originally. WWSW is quite a mouthful
I just checked… You’re close, it’s WWSW, I didn’t think that it could be something like that, I just thought to myself someone there has taken some inspiration from our simple AM callsigns!
Triple GWN of the 90’s would fit in well with that logo, not far off with the orbital oval
A WWOS would be interesting if sport format, probably nothing like Wide World of Sport on 9
There are at least five stations in Canada using the 2Day FM callsign - Cranbrook, British Columbia, Grande Prairie and Lethbridge, Alberta and Niagara Falls and Stratford, Ontario.
There are at least a few that use Fox as their on air ID, though I’m not sure whether Melbourne started using it first or not.
