Birmingham Radio stations

History of Smith Broadcasting

This logo for ESPN Radio 100.5 FM appears on a poster that is circulating around Birmingham.

BIRMINGHAM, Alabama -- Cumulus Media is planning to rebrand Birmingham talk radio station 100 WAPI FM and launch an ESPN Radio sports-talk station on that signal, AL.com has learned.

A logo for the new station appears on a college football schedule poster that has been circulating around Birmingham, and a photo of that schedule, with the logo, also has appeared on Twitter.

Cumulus Media also owns Birmingham sports-talk station WJOX 94.5 FM, which will begin carrying Paul Finebaum's new ESPN Radio show when it starts Aug. 12.

WJOX is an affiliate of CBS Sports Radio, and as part of the deal to get Finebaum's show, Cumulus had to find another station to carry ESPN's syndicated programming, according to an industry source.

According to a tweet this afternoon by 100 WAPI FM's Matt Murphy, host of "The Matt Murphy Show, " all of the station's programming -- which also includes another local show hosted by Richard Dixon, as well as national shows featuring conservative pundits Mark Levin, Michael Savage and Mike Huckabee -- will continue to be available on WAPI-AM 1070, at 100wapi.com and on the audio streaming service iHeartRadio.

WAPI Radio happy to continue on IHeart radio, , and of course on 1070 AM.

Efforts by AL.com to reach representatives for Cumulus Media and WJOX in Birmingham have been unsuccessful this afternoon.

Previously, Summit Media-owned FM station 107.3 The Ticket had carried ESPN's syndicated programming, which includes such national shows as "Mike & Mike" with Mike Golic and Mike Greenberg, "SVP & Russillo with Scott Van Pelt and Ryen Russillo and "The Herd" with Colin Cowherd.

Earlier this month, though, Summit began broadcasting internet alternative-rock station Birmingham Mountain Radio on that signal.

In late June, Summit also pulled the plug on its locally programmed sports-talk station ESPN 97.3 The Zone, which launched in August 2011.

"After nearly two years, it became clear the market did not support two competing sports stations, " David DuBose, executive vice president and chief operating office for Summit Media, said at the time.

Who needs 12 when one will do?
Nick Cohen
The citizens of banana republics can guess their masters' plans when soldiers in black leather storm the radio stations and broadcast martial music. The British learn that their freedoms are going when civil servants in ill-fitting suits go to the pub and get sloshed. At the end of October, a drinking school met at the Home Office's local: the Adam and Eve, on the south side of St James's Park, London. The booze had its customary amnesiac effect, and one man toddled home without his briefcase
