WATCH OUT MARQUETTE COUNTY!!  A NEW RADIO ERA HAS BEGUN!!

GOOD MORNING MARQUETTE COUNTY!

Armed with a fresh pot of coffee, two sets of headphones and our respective news and sports copy scripts, Mark and Walt in the Morning boldly jumped into the abyss of the history books of Marquette County morning radio.  The very first edition of Mark & Walt in the Morning from the new Great Lakes Radio complex in the Superior Lanes Building in Marquette Township.  It was something, to say the least!  The studio is a bit cluttered at this time due to the ongoing construction of the studios and offices, but it is wired up well enough to go on the air, and that’s what we did!  A history making day was had by all!

MORE MOVING, MORE WORKING.

MOVING, MOVING, MOVING! KEEP THAT STATION MOVING!

The rest of the day is being spent moving the WFXD-FM studio equipment from the old Marquette Mall studios to the new facility,  This will allow them to broadcast out of the new studio as early as tomorrow…or at least that is the plan.  As with any significant project as this is, delays and slowdowns are a possibility.  However, I must say that this overall move has been as close to flawless as it could be.  This large of a project is fraught with a countless list of technical concerns and issues, but it has been going along like sliding on glass!  That’s a credit to the technical crew and the construction folks involved in this monumental effort.  Well done, everyone!

WIRES, CABLES, CONNECTORS, OH MY!

WHAT'S SO HARD ABOUT WIRING A RADIO STUDIO ANYWAY?

The challenge is not over yet, though, and we will be continuing with moving all of the various operations and offices over the next week or so.  Please keep listening and keep checking out the blog for the latest information about our efforts.  We’ll be up to full speed soon and then you all can come by for a cup of coffee and join your favorite morning radio team as they muddle forth into this new era in Marquette County radio!

THANKS FOR LISTENING!

-CHEERS!
