More media carnage: two Montreal AM stations shut down

Well, AM has been in touch ever since FM produced a higher quality sound, which meant most of the music migrated to that frequency, leaving AM to all news/sports/talk show formats. I didn’t know till the National Post told me (some value to newspapers still, providing more information in a less timely manner than their broadcast colleagues) that one of the stations shut down was the first radio station in Canada, dating back to Marconi. Worth reading for that alone.

  1. “Media Carnage.” Given your last name (and the current media industry landscape) that would actually be a good name for your blog. Or, if you were going to start a band or something.
