Bloomberg Radio, which features 24 hours of news and information in New York City, will be simulcasting the second U.S. Senate debate on Thursday night between Republican Linda McMahon and Democrat Chris Murphy.
Bloomberg is 1130 on the AM dial, and longtime New Yorkers will remember that was the spot for decades for WNEW, featuring famed hosts like Gene Rayburn, Gene Klavan, and William B. Williams. Bloomberg purchased the station from WNEW about 20 years ago.
The debate will be broadcast live on television on FOX CT from the University of Connecticut campus in Storrs at 7 p.m. It will also be simulcast on Farmington-based WTIC-AM, which is 1080 on the dial.
The radio station is highly popular with the financial crowd, and it competes for news listeners with the news, traffic, and weather stations of 1010 WINS and WCBS 880 in the New York area.
Bloomberg, with the call letters of WBBR, has a strong signal in Fairfield County, where McMahon and Murphy are battling it out on the way to the November 6 election.
