Connecticut Red Sox Radio Shocker
WTIC AM1080 has broadcast every Red Sox game for the last 46 years. With its 50,000 watt signal, summer nights from Connecticut to North Carolina are enriched by the sounds of Sox baseball from its Hartford signal. But now it is said WTIC is negotiating with the Yankees! Disbelief here in Connecticut. The reason why? Entercom, which owns Sox flagship WEEI, has raised the price for affiliates to carry the Sox season. So maybe, just maybe (we can only hope), WTIC is floating out this Yankee thing as a means of lowering Entercom's asking price. The Red Sox do well with WTIC....it's reach is larger than any other radio station dedicated to the Sox. And that's one thing WTIC is dedicated to. All things Red Sox. Entercom, don't lose Connecticut's largest radio station. You'd lose so many of us, too. And that is something you cannot afford to do. No way. No how. Not in MY lifetime.
