WQAM Adds Stern, Dolphins Seeking New Home?
August 2, 2004

With Beasley Broadcast Group announcing last Friday (7/30) that Howard Stern will return to the Miami airwaves on Sports Radio WQAM-AM starting on Monday, August 16, the Miami Dolphins might be looking for a new home on the dial. 

The Dolphins have one season left with WQAM. A recent statement by team President Eddie Jones puts in doubt the longterm prospects of the NFL franchise sticking with the station. ''It's our belief that the sports-talk format better serves the fans in this market [than Stern],'' he told the Miami Herald.

WQAM has been trying to negotiate an extension, but given Jones' comment, owner Wayne Huizenga may look to move to another station in town, although a source told the paper that WQAM still has a good chance to retain the rights.

Stern was last heard on Clear Channel Classic Rocker WBGG in Miami before he was yanked off the air by the company in six markets across the country.

Commenting on the addition to WQAM's morning line up, Greg Reed, Vice President and General Manager of WQAM, noted, "With an enormous, long-term following in the Miami market, we are delighted to welcome Howard Stern to WQAM.  Howard's morning show, which is enjoyed by millions of listeners nationwide, is a perfect complement to our daily programming line-up.  We are confident he will once again receive a warm reception from listeners and advertisers alike."

"Together with the irreverent Neil Rogers [in middays], WQAM will offer Miami's best weekday morning programming line-up, featuring hallmark sports programming with humorous, thought-provoking talk," Reed continued. "We believe this combination positions WQAM as the team to beat during the morning drive in South Florida."
