Cumulus Reclaims WTYB From Trust
Cumulus Media is taking Urban AC “Magic 103.9” WTYB Bluffton SC/Savannah GA back from the Joule Broadcasting trust.
WTYB, then licensed to Tybee Island GA, was placed in the trust following Cumulus’ 2011 purchase of Citadel Broadcasting. The city-of-license change in 2012 to Bluffton is what Cumulus is using to as merit to reclaim the station as it would place it in the Hilton Head SC market and not Savannah GA.
WTYB will also begin airing the syndicated Tom Joyner Morning Show on Thursday, February 18. The show had been heard on iHeartMedia’s “Love 101.1” WLVH until being replaced by Steve Harvey at the beginning of this year.
