Tom Wilson’s Murray Hill Broadcasting took the wraps off of AAA “87.7 Cleveland’s Sound” WLFM-LP on Sunday evening.
The station was originally aiming for a late-July startup, which got pushed back due to the normal delays associated with a new signal startup. OhioMediaWatch.com reported last week that Marty Bender, former OM/PD of WFBQ Indianapolis and Executive Producer of the Bob & Tom show had been hired as Program Director for 87.7.
The station held a “casting call” in mid-July for on-air hosts. Now word if anybody was hired out of that yet, however Archie Berwick has been tapped to host mornings and former 92.3 WKRK host Rachel Steele will be in afternoons.
First song – Pearl Jam's "Betterman" – live from the Q, May 20, 2006 #87.7FM #Cleveland
