West Palm Beach’s Bar Gives Way To True Oldies
As we first reported in our December 20 Daily Domains, JVC Broadcasting has dropped Active Rock “93.5 The Bar” WBGF Belle Glade/West Palm Beach FL as the station flipped to “True Oldies 93.5” at the stroke of midnight on New Years Day.
Utilizing the syndicated network created by Scott Shannon and currently distributed by United Stations Radio Networks. The West Palm Beach market had been without an Oldies or Classic Hits station, with JVC Soft AC “95.9 The Palm” 960 WSVU filling the void by default.
The Bubba The Love Sponge fronted Active Rock format did not register in the three most recent Nielsen Audio ratings monthlies. The WBGF signal rimshots the West Palm Beach market from near the southern edge of Lake Okeechobee with a Construction Permit to move a little closer to the market.
