SummitMedia Variety Hits “97.7 Chuck-FM” W249CB Greenville SC/WJMZ-HD3 Anderson SC will move to 99.5 on Friday, August 19 at 11:59pm. W249CB is moving to 99.5 due to a since cancelled CP for Classic Hits “97 Big-FM” 97.7 WMGZ Eatonton GA to relocate to Lexington to serve the Athens market. W249CB will see no changes to its current 250w/333m facilities. The move will set off a chain reaction as Ted McCall’s 97.1 W246BU Spartanburg will move 97.7 in Greenville rebroadcasting an HD subchannel of Entercom’s 93.7 WFBC-FM.
