97.7 WILD-FM becomes WAAF Simulcast

Sometimes the biggest moves come out of nowhere. Unexpectedly on August 21, 2006, Radio-One announced the sale of Urban AC “97.7 WILD-FM” to Entercom. By the next day, Entercom had already taken over the operations of the station via an LMA. The signal, which rimshots Boston and it’s southern suburbs was a perfect compliment to the western based signal of 107.3 WAAF. The former Worcester station had recently upgraded its signal and moved eastward with a change in city of license to Westborough, but still had a hard time covering the urban center of Boston putting it at a competitive disadvantage. With the 97.7 and 107.3 signals combined, WAAF could promote the fact that it covered more area than any Boston FM signal. As the ticking clock stunt hit zero, you could make out...

610 WSLC drops country WSLC-FM for Urban AC WVBE-FM

WSLC 610 stopped the country format it had for nearly 50 years…the last year and a half or so as a simulcast of country sister FM WSLC-FM 94.9 “94.9 Star Country”. It is now WVBE(AM), simulcasting sister FM WVBE-FM 100.1 in Lynchburg, VA, about 50 miles to the east. The clip, I believe, is useful for your collection because they did NOT just “flip the switch”…they gave a salute to WSLC/610’s long history in the format, and a “launch” into the new simulcast of the Lynchburg station. In addition, the jock on the air at the time noted the switch on both stations. Thanks to Mike Ward for the clip and the summary http://formatchange.com/audio/91.mp3

105.5 WBNJ becomes Dance CHR WZBZ “B105.5 The Buzz”

In the Spring of 1998, 107.3 WZZP teased South Jersey with a Rhythmic CHR format. With no promotion or publicity, the brand new signal garnered a 2 share in its first ratings book. Seeing the hole for something between Urban AC WTTH and Adult leaning CHR WAYV, Margate Communications took a chance on something different. Pulling the plug on recently acquired satellite Modern Rocker WDOX, Margate moved the southern half of the Urban AC “Touch” simulcast from 105.5 to WDOX’s 93.1 slot. Rimshotting greater Atlantic City area from Cape May Court House, WZBZ debuted with a Dance CHR format designed to target WAYV, while still protecting WTTH. Within a year, WZBZ moved to 99.3 in Pleasantville, while retaining the 105.5 simulcast as WGBZ, giving the station full signal coverage ...
