“The Gambler is the future of sports radio,” said Keith Kennedy, Market President of iHeartMedia Youngstown. “We are thrilled to bring this hot new format to The Valley and assist the Youngstown community with navigating the ever-growing world of sports wagering.”

  1. The only difference between this and what WDAS / W273DO / WRFF HD2 Philadelphia has, is that instead of local programming long about afternoon drive, it switches to network programming from VSIN, based in Las Vegas.

  2. How times have changed! Back in the 1960s, the FCC pulled the license of WCLM-FM (101.9) in Chicago for airing horse racing results and, possibly, betting info on its SCA subcarrier–not on its main channel, which would have made this matter far more serious. Also, it wasn’t all that long ago that stations could not air state lottery winning numbers if the state where they were located did not have a state lottery or if the numbers were for a lottery in a state not directly adjoining the state where the stations were located.
