The 98.7 signal is very weak, downtown Tampa is essentially its coverage map. That's why they originally moved WLLD to their stronger signal 94.1. PLAY 98.7 has tanked mostly because the format is oversaturated. In a few years AM will is going to be phased out anyway, just like old tv's with rabbit ears, so maybe CBS is just trying to get a jump on capturing the M 24-54 demo on the fm so they have a foothold when the change is made. Good luck with that.

If they make the switch then I'll probably listen to the station more. Radio doesn't get a lot of AM channels so switching to FM would be nice.


Don't get the correlation to the butt... but thnx anyway.

Agree.   Hell, some of those big time AM stations cover half the country at nightime hours.

\\\\\\\"Java, do you understand this a perfect example of why people beg me to suspend or ban you on a daily basis? Are you actually trying to make a point? Seriously what is the reason for even commenting. In fact why do you even bother coming to the boards? What happened to the intelligent poster from years ago?  A real shame. Like the Bucs yesterday, a wasted effort.\\\\\\\"

I'm really impressed with Booger Macfarland as a talk show host. Dude is entertaining and insightful. Probably my favorite show on the new station.

What is your point? I was wrong? Ok. You win. I was wrong.

I can barely hear what they are saying on 98.7 with all the static.  I'm in SE Seminole Hts.  Nebraska between Hillsborough and MLK.  This isn't gonna do much for me.  : ((

As opposed to the other show that is on that same time , Jim Rome , who wrote the definition for "contrived" considering his entire show is scripted.  LOL

But , hey, whatever floats your boat .

What are you talking about ?

the first day i heard him talk he called roy miller a 2nd round pick, said gillespie was the UF RB, and had some crazy logic that i wish i could remember.  i really thought wright was gonna call him out on it, but of course let him slide.  only heard a little today so nothing bad, but his fear vs respect got old quick imo.

im probably a bit biased though.  the guy talks like he was all world when in fact he was very average considering his draft status.  i still cringe thinking we had jevon kearse gift wrapped.

I'll listen to Rush Limbaugh before those two.

ugh.  i heard him talk for an hour about how special it was for him to be on air for 24 years.  cant imagine how much he will kiss his own behind next year.

keep yourself out of the story and id tune in much more.

I agree. Very bad.  I don't like the Commish w/ Gary Sheldon either. Bad combination.
