WBKE Extends New Country Battle To Morgantown
LHTC Media has launched a third current based Country outlet in Morgantown WV.
1490 WBKE Fairmont launched its 98.3 W252EF translator and flipped from Talk to Country “98.3 Blake-FM“. The 250w/78m signal is operating from the tower of sister “100.9 Jack-FM” WZST Westover/Morgantown.
The station is running jockless and continues to serve as flagship for West Virginia Black Bears minor league baseball. The new format makes for the third Country outlet serving Morgantown alongside West Virginia Radio Company’s market leading 97.9 WKKW and Burbach Broadcasting’s “Froggy” trimulcast 92.7 WGIE Clarksburgh/102.7 WGYE Mannington/103.9 W280FF Morgantown.
