The Roar (2021-)

Research needed.

Note: Conflicts with WCSX at 93.5FM and CJAM at 99.1FM.
The hourly station identification claims “94.7 WCSX-HD2 Birmingham, W228CJ Detroit, and W256EA Birmingham”.

Notes

  • Out of respect, I'll leave these here:
    • Sabrina Black, update reporter at WDFN, died on March 20, 2006 of leukemia and lymphoma.16)
    • Jamie Samuelsen, radio personality at WXYT, died on August 1, 2020 of colon cancer.17)18)19)20)
  • This article was partially inspired by the xkcd comic, "Challengers" (explainxkcd), who oddly lists WDFN on their map despite it being a dead sports station at the time.
  • The other reason is that Wikipedia is "not a directory", so they doesn't normally retain schedules.
