works, I’ll never understand, but he is laugh-out-loud funny and a content
machine.*Southern California radio doesn’t have anyone like Greg, and we’re
thrilled he’s joined the KLOS mafia.”*

Detroit Public Schools Sells 90.9 WRCJ

Posted: 10 Jan 2017 04:07 AM PST

The Detroit Public School system has sold Classical/Jazz 90.9 WRCJ-FM
Detroit to Detroit Classical and Jazz Educational Radio LLC for $6 million.

The deal is structured to enable the station to continue to be operated by
Detroit Public Television. Detroit Classical and Jazz Educational Radio LLC
is fully owned by the Stanley and Judith Frankel Family Foundation, who
will enter into a Public Service Operating Agreement to allow Detroit
Public Television to operate the station for ten years. Detroit Public
Television has been managing WRCJ-FM on behalf of Detroit Public Schools.

The state of Michigan legislature had voted in July 2016 to dissolve
Detroit Public Schools and replace it with a new entity. The sale of WRCJ
will go towards paying back debt owed by the school district. Detroit
Public Television, owners of WTVS, began operating WRCJ-FM in August 2005.
That is when the former WDTR began its current mix of Classical from 5am to
7pm and Jazz at night.

James Cridland: Norway switches off FM. But why dont they just do streaming?
