WPZR Completes Rebrand As Detroit Praise Network As EMF Closes On 102.7 Purchase
Urban One Gospel “Praise 102.7” WPZR Mount Clemens/Detroit is officially no more as the format has completed its move to a network of four translators.
The “Detroit Praise Network” consists of three translators acquired by Urban One in the sale of WPZR to Educational Media Foundation: 93.5 W228CJ Detroit, 93.5 W228CU Riverview, 98.3 W252BX Detroit and the previously owned 99.9 W260CB Detroit. The four signals combine to cover most of Detroit and its surrounding suburbs. Programming will originate from 105.9 WDMK-HD2.
One programming change accompanies the move as Mildred Gaddis’ talk show moves from 10am-12pm on WPZR to Sunday mornings on sister Urban AC “105.9 Kiss-FM” WDMK. Gaddis will also take on the additional role of Community Director for Urban One Detroit.
With the closing of the $12,229,000 sale of WPZR to EMF, that station will debut the Christian AC “K-Love” network programming with new WDKL call letters now in place.
