Townsquare Media Shuts Down Sports Talk WYOS, Binghamton

Townsquare Media turned off the transmitter for WYOS-AM, Binghamton on December 28, apparently ending the station’s carriage of the sports talk format branded as “CBS Sports 1360.”According to a report by WITV-TV, Townsquare Binghamton general manager Mary Beth Walsh says “the CBS Sports Radio format was not supported by local advertising.” Townsquare submitted a special temporary authority filing with the FCC to be off air indicating an auxiliary transmitter failure. It says the company is working to return the signal to the air and will notify the FCC when it’s able to do so.
