Merkel worked at WMBA in the late 1970s. He would have been among the last of the crew at the location atop the tire shop. They were on 14th Street by 1981.

If WMBA wasn't simulcasting WBVP, the station would probably be dark today. It was a challenge to pay the bills there 30 years ago. I doubt it could stand alone in today's environment. One of the few times they break from the simulcast is for high school play by play. They can cover games at both ends of the Valley and maximize their potential to sell advertising.
