Well, that didn’t take long, did it?

wedx-bullonlyJust days after completing the last piece of the three-way shuffle that downgraded signals in Providence and on Cape Cod to provide a modest improvement (from directional to nondirectional class A) at Boston-market WBWL (101.7 Lynn), iHeart has filed for a bigger boost for “The Bull.”

WBWL’s latest application, accepted for filing Tuesday morning, calls for 101.7 to go from class A status up to class B1, trading its current transmitter site atop One Financial Center in downtown Boston for a return to its previous site in Medford, on a hill above Malden Hospital.

From there, 101.7 would run 13.5 kW/453′, pushing its 57 dBu protected contour south as far as Brockton, west to Marlborough and north to the Merrimack Valley.

More details in next Monday’s NERW…

  1. Sounds like it will be a very similar to the signal I remember from the old CBS WEEI-FM at 103.3 when they operated at 20 KW ERP from an identical height on this tower
