America's #1 Blog Themed Sports Network!
In response to the current COVID-19 pandemic, WLSN downgraded from being a two stream network to a one stream network in March. At that time, we decreased our bandwidth from 3 TB to 1 TB and decreased our stream quality from 128 kbps to 64kbps. This had an impact on our listeners. When our bandwidth was near capacity, our network limited additional listeners. This was a temporary solution to help take us through the current global pandemic. We took these measures due to the financial constraint this pandemic has had on our network.
We did not run any live shows during this time. Our stream on Tune In Radio was also shut down temporarily.
We apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused.
On May 9th, 2020 we upgraded back to a two stream network. During this upgrade, we increased bandwidth back to 3 TB and stream quality back to 128 kbps. Our station can once again be found at leeibsports.com and on Tune In radio.
In June, we applied and received a music license. Our license, through the American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers allows us to play licensed music on our station. We spent the month of June transitioning our automation from royalty free to licensed 70's, 80's, 90's, 2000's, and the best of today music. With this upgrade, we have moved our daily podcast streaming to prime time streaming on select nights. We have also updated our nightly archives to play newly released content overnight between the hours of 12am-9am. Each podcast, along with having a nightly archive, will also have a time block one day each week. On select weekends, WLSN will host "Marathon" shows. This will consist of a lengthy time block of a select show in archive form.
With the loss of professional sports during this pandemic, our network created the Virtual Hockey For Charity (VHFC) Tournament through our LEEIB In The Community program. This not only created new and exciting content for our listeners but it also helped to create positive contributions to our community.
