As Cox Media Group's Kristin Okesson confirmed, four Southern Connecticut radio stations are up for sale, including STAR 99.9, 99.1 PLR, 95.9 The Fox, and the rights to sell WYBC, owned by Yale.
While each of these stations transmit out of different locations in Connecticut (Bridgeport, Norwalk), their offices are located on Wheelers Farm Road in Milford.
If these stations are sold, there is a chance their formats could change. This is not an unusual occurrence in Connecticut. Over the years, for example, 104.1 has changed from an alternative rock format to hip-hop and back again.
We pose the question to you: What would you like to see become of the stations STAR 99.9 and 99.1 PLR? What type of radio are you missing from your life?
Do you want a station to play Adele 24/7? Should a channel on your radio be dedicated to the standards of Cole Porter and Frank Sinatra? Do you want more adventurous (MGMT) and local acts (Milford's own Twice Around) to have a shot further up the radio dial? Do you want more talk radio? Another NPR station? Or has internet radio, Pandora and Spotify deemed local radio stations useless for you?
Let us know in the comments section about what you'd like to see become of these radio stations that are up for sale. Also, if you'd like things to stay exactly as they are, let us know that, too.
