The Block Prepping Frequency Shift In Northeastern North Carolina
In May 2018, East Carolina Radio purchased 104.9 WFMZ Hertford NC from Hengooch LLC for $150,000 to round out its cluster in the northeastern corner of North Carolina.
The company took the station silent immediately after it closed on the acquisition in August. This week 104.9 WFMZ returned to the air simulcasting sister Urban “96.7 The Block” WKJX Elizabeth City and has begun promoting the upcoming move of the format from 96.7 to 104.9.
While both stations are 50kW Class C2 signals, the 96.7 is further east and puts more of its signal over the Atlantic Ocean
