New Radio Affiliate in Louisville Brings New Problem

When we wrote earlier about the problems we were having with our local Reds on Radio affiliate being a very weak station and we were happy to hear that a new partner had stepped up.  93.9 WQKC FM “The Ticket” will be the new radio affiliate for the Reds in Louisville.  That’s good news.  A strong station that we can get in the house and in our car.  The only bad thing about this station is that it is run by like 3 guys out of a corner of a building in downtown Louisville.  As you can see, the website hasn’t been updated since March.

All mention of the Reds has been wiped clean from the WKRD site.  Perhaps they have ended all affiliation with the Reds and they won’t be on two stations at once. It is a shame that they couldn’t do something to help out fans and keep both the Reds and Louisville Bats on the same sister station.  The signal improved enough so that we could get the games at home since our original post.

However, a new problem has cropped up.

WQKC also broadcasts the Louisville Fire, an Arena2 Football League team.  They have games at the same time as the Reds (most start around 7 or 8 PM). The Fire signed a deal in February of this year with WQKC.  We weren’t able to contact WQKC for comment or get any explination of what will happen when the two games are played at the same time.  As soon as we do, we will post something here.

Hopefully they will do what is right and broadcast the Reds games instead of the Fire or else we will have to send another letter to Joe Zerhusen (who was very nice on the phone by the way) and let him know about the new problem.

Thanks to John Fay for the tip.
