Three Way Format Shuffle In Meridian
The closing of the two deals between Burke Broadcasting, Mississippi Broadcasters, and New South Radio has led to a three station format shuffle in Meridian MS.
The Urban format of “105.7 The Beat” WJXM De Kalb stays with Clay Holladay’s Mississippi Broadcasters as it moves to 95.1 WKZB Marion as “95.1 The Beat“.
Burke had been operating the stations formerly owned by New South Media since March 2015 via Time Brokerage Agreement and acquired them for $500,000. He then swapped WKZB and 910 WALT Meridian to Mississippi Broadcasters for WJXM, but continues to operate WALT via TBA.
