WOOD in Grand Rapids, Michigan, is the most common station of all on the crowded but interesting frequency of 1300 kHz. Their distinctive “Newsradio 1300 WOOD” identifications are frequently heard, often along with the New York stations WXRL and/or WGDJ. My previous attempts of getting a verification from WOOD has not been successfull. Some weeks ago, however, Phil Tower, Program Director, confirmed my reception with a brief e-mail.
WOOD broadcasts with a night time power of 20 kilowatts so no wonder they get out so well. The logo of the station features Willie Wood, the station’s woodpecker mascot.
