WMVP Adds HD Simulcast

Good Karma Broadcasting Sports “ESPN 1000” WMVP Chicago has begun simulcasting on Hubbard’s 100.3 WSHE-HD2.

Emphasizing that over 50% of new cars come with HD Radio as standard equipment, the move allows WMVP to at least stake some availability on FM for drivers in the market. Audacy’s competing “670 The Score” WSCR is also heard in HD on 104.3 WBMX-HD2.
