Why did 99.5 The Vibe go off the air?

That's funny - the only obvious reason was to get rid of the staff that was already in place and doing a jam up job! Strange way to do it, but that's all it accomplished. We don't have a money spending 12 year old base here in the Birmingham Market demo. It didn't take anyone more than a fool to think what they did would work. If the owners had looked over the Arbitron data first, it would have saved them a lot of time and money. That was really a less than brilliant move.

You need to talk to your engineer. The UAB basketball broadcast tonight (1/16/16) was interrupted at least four times with country music (probably recorded). The interruptions lasted anywhere from one to 5 songs with accompanying announcer talk in between songs. The music was playing over and drowning the basketball broadcast. The music was definitely your broadcast, complete with station identification. The way that local broadcast keep interrupting game it sounded like a technical problem, perhaps recording starting up on a timing program.
Figuring it out what went wrong is your problem. All I know is that it was very, very aggravating. Please don't let that happen again.
