Skip to comments.106.9 Philadelphia Truth & Rumors (new conserv talk)

Update 4/12: As we draw near to the launch of Merlin Media debuting its programming on 106.9 WKDN, information regarding its future programming is now starting to leak.
We all know by now that Rush Limbaugh will be moving to the station sometime in the next 90 days following the termination of its syndication with CBS 1210 WPHT. Rumors persist that Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity will be joining Rush on 106.9, and Merlin did make a registration for Hannity1069.com this week.
Merlin has also dropped MAJOR hints on the branding of its new station. Domain registrations have been made for IQ1069.com and IQ1069FM.com. A matching Twitter account is live @IQ1069, but most importantly Merlin made a request for the WWIQ calls on March 19.
-- Original Report 4/2: Merlin Media closed on its purchase of 106.9 WKDN Camden/Philadelphia in late February and has been leasing the station back to Family Radio while it completes upgrades to the stations facilities and builds studios for the stations future operations.
The next step may take place on April 15. A Family Radio listener group states that the Christian programming will come to an end on that date.
Rush leaving WPHT? Why am I not surprised?
The management of WPHT seems to have a goal of bankrupting the station.
Thanks for the ping.
If this new talk format could add Levin to the lineup that would suit me fine. I get 77WABC okay from where I’m at (Bucks County) but a local station would be better.
It's like 96.5 WWDB deja vu all over again. Dump Phil Valentine and Tom Marr and load up with Smerconish-style liberals.
Yeah, that was a recipe for success.
Try AM790 Allentown.
I'm going to assume you're way up in Bucks. Are you able to get 990 AM? They run a tape of Levin from 9pm to 11pm, and generally good programing all day (Don't get me started on Mike Gallagher though).
It's not ideal, but possibly a better alternative.
Thanks for your kind reply. I’m in the Council Rock area, but I run my own company and spend a lot of time in the car so I’m all over the Philly area, from Chester County to Upper Bucks.
I get 990 pretty good most places. In fact, I occasionally listen to Medved after Rush, but he can be tough to take. And yes, I do sometimes listen to the taped Mark Levin show on that station.
Dudes...I heart radio 104.7. I am listening to analog radio less and less.
