5/1 - DCRTV hears that Cumulus news talker WMAL today will officially be pulling the plug on its iconic transmitter site in Bethesda, which is being sold to developers. WMAL veteran Tom Gauger posts on Facebook: "A sad day for the WMAL family. Chief Engineer Dave Sproul throws the switch that turns off the transmitter at the legacy site on Bethesda's Greentree Road. At 2 PM EDT WMAL will begin transmission from another site. I'll be there representing a long line of familiar voices heard on WMAL." Starting today, WMAL's 630 signal will come from a site shared with Salem talker WWRC, 570, in Germantown MD, with poorer coverage, especially at night. Most of WMAL's listeners are now tuned to its 105.9 FM signal from Northern Virginia. Check out DCRTV Dave's exploration of the Bethesda site last summer (below).....
