Scripps: radio out, podcasting in; and triplej's Hottest 100 shows radio still big for the young

January 29, 2018

Last week, I posted about iHeart's Santa 100, a radio station in Columbus OH which switched to "Christmas time, all the time". No wonder I was confused - it was, of course, a stunt (another from the crazy mind of Paige Nienaber), to get people to talk about iHeart's Hot 100, a new urban-format radio station. Its main competitor is WBFA 98.3 The Beat, an urban radio station which... iHeart owned until 24 November. I guess they missed the urban format too much.
