Broadcast Area[edit]

Someone added Northern Indiana and Southern Wisconsin to the broadcast area. While the station may be available in those areas, WSCR does not cover teams located in those areas (Milwaukee teams, WI Badgers, Purdue Boilermakers, etc). Notre Dame is argurable, but I still would not consider The Score a major analyst of Indiana sports teams. Feel free to comment if you agree or disagree with me.

Merging?[edit]

WMAQ and WSCR are two seperate entities, each worthy of seperate articles. WMAQ, while defunct, has a deep history very worthy of an article spanning multiple pages. WSCR's only relation to WMAQ is it took over the frequency in a corporate takeover/FCC required restructuring. Electrawn 08:41, 11 June 2006 (UTC)

See Talk:WMAQ Radio for past discussion.
  • Appears WMAQ Radio was deleted, along with Talk. Electrawn 08:41, 11 June 2006 (UTC)

FYI, it was me that replaced the redirect with the stub (I was logged out!) --WCQuidditch 01:41, 24 January 2006 (UTC)

I placed the merge message on both pages because, while they are seperate stations, both shared the same frequency. It's kind of the same deal for WNBC (AM) and WFAN in New York, but there isn't a separate page for WNBC's history; it's included within the WFAN entry. Rollosmokes 17:07, 11 June 2006 (UTC)

Did WNBC and WFAN share the same studios? Format? If all they shared in common was the same frequency -- Sounds like WFAN and WNBC need spliting before WMAQ and WSCR need merging. Remember this is an encyclopedia, If we merge these two there needs to be a flow. This case is an apple and an orange. Electrawn 04:34, 26 June 2006 (UTC)

Why the cleanup tags have gone up[edit]

Users Spiddy (talk · contribs), Crazyfingers (talk · contribs) and Breaknine (talk · contribs) have made the article below the intro... very ugly and hard to read, to say the least. It needs lots of tidying up -- in fact, I probably should have tagged for a complete rewrite. Anyway, the article's current state is sad, to say the least. --WCQuidditch 17:24, 20 May 2006 (UTC)

I cleaned this up (at least took care of some of the bad grammar) and agree with Electrawn that this should be separate from WMAQ, for the reasons stated. WMAQ was closed when WSCR took over its frequency (basically because both WMAQ and WBBM were Viacom-owned news radio stations), and WMAQ's staff was terminated. It would make as much sense to merge WSCR with WMAQ based on frequency as to merge it with whatever is now on 820 and 1060. --Busjack 03:51, 31 July 2006 (UTC)
I did some re-organization of shows and segments, that hopefully would make it easier and entice more people to update. Breaknine 27 April 2006
I really question the last edit, and think it should be reverted. The article is no longer encyclopedic, and instead of appearing to be a complete article, has numerous sections with nothing in it. Also, stressing the various Boers and Bernstein segments appears to violate Wikipedia:Notability, since most of them, except Who ya crappin, are here today and gone tomorrow. There isn't any more Second Hand News or Transition. I will revert it unless someone convinces me that the last edit was an improvement, instead of Trivia. Busjack 20:00, 27 April 2007 (UTC)
Not a problem. I took some information and moved and may have got a little carried away. I was trying to start some info on certain staples of the show and got away from it. Breaknine 27 April 2007 (UTC)
Before you go gung-ho, I suggest that you read Wikipedia:Policies and guidelines and subordinate links, regarding such matters as notability and the prohibition on trivia. Also, this isn't a scratchpad with numerous sections that say nothing, there is the sandbox for that. I see that someone else tried to revert this, I think you should allow it.
