WaPo Confuses WTOP for Mexican Radio

WaPo had an interesting take on WTOP  in Paul Farhi’s Jan. 10 obituary on longtime radio personality Bill Trumbull. The obit said Chris Core, Trumbull’s former on-air partner on WMAL for 20 years, is now on WTOP…1050AM. Which would be fine if that were true.

The station, 1050 AM, is La Mera Mera, a regional Mexican music station. WTOP is on 103.5 FM, 103.9 FM and 107.7 FM.  WTOP hasn’t been on the AM dial IN YEARS.

Congrats WaPo, or something like that.
