iHeartMedia has begun operating Birach Broadcasting’s 640 WMFN Peotone IL allowing the company to bring its Black Information Network to Chicago.
WMFN was moved into Illinois in 2015 from Zeeland MI and had continued to simulcast Cano’s Broadcasting Regional Mexican “La Poderosa 810” WMJH Rockford/Grand Rapids. It operates with 4.4kW day/1.6kW night from about 40 miles south of Chicago.
The Black Information Network had only been heard in Chicago on 102.7 WVAZ-HD2. The addition of WMFN places the network on primary signals in now 34 markets since its launch in June 2020.
