Czech Republic

I am listening to CRo Dvojka on 639, 954 and 1332 kHz one hour before final switch off. Very good reception on all three frequencies.
As a memento the song “Enjoy The Silence” by Depeche Mode has just been played.

CRo Radiozurnal on LW 270 kHz will also be switched off for good tonight.

Confirmation from Radio Prague International – Czech Radio stopping long, medium wave broadcasting at midnight. Midnight will be local time – 23:00 UTC.

Czech Radio (Český rozhlas) will stop broadcasting on long and medium wave as of midnight on Friday. Their stations will be available via DAB + as well as on the internet.
Until now, the public broadcaster’s Dvojka and Plus stations could be heard on medium wave, and the Radiožurnál station also on long wave.
DAB + digital signal expands the range of services and covers 95 percent of the Czech Republic.

It seems, that the list of switching off MW transmitters is infinite….

“С первого января 2022 года «UA: Перший» прекращает аналоговое вещание в восьми населенных пунктах, региональное вещание Общественного — в 7 населенных пунктах. «Украинское радио» прекращает трансляции на средних волнах (в СВ-диапазоне на частоте 549 кГц) в с. Луч Николаевской области.”

Google translated:
From January 1, 2022, UA: Pershy will stop analogue broadcasting in eight settlements, regional broadcasting of the Public – in 7 settlements. “Ukrainian Radio” stops broadcasting on medium
waves (in the MW range at a frequency of 549 kHz) in s. Luch Nikolaevskaya areas.

That means the Luch (луч) transmitter will cease operation on 549 kHz, it seems to be too cost-intensive.

Cumulus Media has ceased operations and turned in the license of 1580 KXZZ Lake Charles LA.

The 1kW AM began operations in 1947 as KLOU before taking on the KXZZ call letters in 1985. The station has operated as “Sports Radio 1580” carrying the national CBS Sports Radio lineup since the network’s launch in January 2013. It previously was R&B Oldies as “Z16“.
