Bloomberg Radio proviodes global business news programming 24 hours a day and is a service of Bloomberg L.P. The format is general and financial news, offering local, national and international news reports along with financial market updates and interviews with corporate executives, economists and industry analysts. On off hours, local stations may preempt with local sports play-by-play coverage such as college basketball, tennis and other sports coverage.
Bloomberg Radio is broadcast on radio stations around the United States, and directly operates four radio stations: WBBR (1130 AM) in New York City, WXKS (1200 AM) in Newton, Massachusetts, (serving the Boston area), KNEW (960 AM) in Oakland, California (serving the San Francisco bay area), and WDCH-FM (99.1 FM) in Bowie, Maryland, serving the Baltimore and Washington, D.C. area. Bloomberg purchased the first of these, WBBR (at the time designated as WNEW), in 1992, for $13.5 million. Bloomberg took over the operation of WXKS in the spring of 2013 and KNEW in the fall of 2014. Both stations are owned and operated by iHeartMedia, Inc. (formerly Clear Channel Communications), but are programmed by Bloomberg Radio under a local marketing agreement (LMA). On December 21, 2015, Bloomberg Radio launched a similar arrangement on CBS Radio-owned WNEW-FM, its first FM radio station. The call letters of WNEW-FM were later changed to WDCH-FM. Bloomberg Radio is also heard nationally on SiriusXM satellite radio channel 119. Source
