Radio-One Gospel “Praise 1230” WDBZ Cincinnati has completed the move of 98.5 W253AJ Elida OH to 101.5 in Cincinnati as W268CM.
Radio One Cincinnati has announced the addition of an FM translator to Praise 1230 AM, “Cincinnati’s Inspiration Station.”
Effective immediately, Praise 1230 AM can also be heard in full stereo on 101.5 FM. Praise went live December 3rd, 2015, bringing national gospel heavyweights like Willie Moore Jr. and Darlene McCoy to the city, while showcasing much of the local-focused programming WDBZ-AM was known for, notably The Lincoln Ware Show. Over the past several months, the station has added the all-new Erica Campbell Morning Show to its lineup and expanded its inspirational music programming.
Radio One Cincinnati Station Manager, Mitch Galvin, stated that music fans would be in for a significant increase in audio fidelity. “The sound quality and increased reach of our Praise format is going to be great for listeners and will allow us to do some big things in the community!”
Operations Manager, Kenard Karter, added, “We’re excited to expand the footprint of Praise 1230 AM to the FM dial—this will help continue the growth of the station and ensure that Praise continues to be a place where our community comes for information, entertainment, and to make their voices heard.”
Show host, Lincoln Ware, best captured the enthusiasm of the announcement, stating, “I’m excited to speak with younger listeners who would never touch the AM dial but are passionate about talk radio and gospel music!”
In addition to 1230 AM and 101.5 FM, Praise can be heard via HD Radio on 101.1 FM HD2 and streamed live 24/7 at PraiseCincy.com.
