103.1 WLOQ Orlando Sold; Now Stunting With Elvis
Update 8/3: As expected, 103.1 will flip to Spanish CHR “KQ 103” at 9pm tonight. The station will launch with 20,000 songs in a row. New WHKQ calls are in place as well.
Update 8/1: 103.1 WLOQ dropped its Smooth Jazz format at 12am and began stunting with all Elvis Presley music as “Elvis 103.1“.
The signs point to a Spanish CHR direction. KQ103.com was registered by one of the members of the new ownership group. The logo on what appears to be the new Facebook page for the station is identical to that of “KQ 105” WKAQ-FM San Juan, PR.
Since way too many people have been contacting us thinking we’re involved with the station, please make it known that we are not. The current Elvis programming is temporary and will soon be replaced by the new permanent format.
Original Report 7/13: Gross Communications has sold Smooth AC 103.1 WLOQ Orlando to TTB Media run by Eran Schreiber for $8 Million.
TTB is half owned by the Lindemann family that previously were partners in Mega Communications from 1998 to 2004 when they sold the group to Entravision. The group will be taking over WLOQ via a time brokerage agreement on Monday, August 1 until the sale closes.
Not included in the sale agreement is any of the intellectual property pertaining to the current format including the website and music library. Either WLOQ will move to a new frequency or will remain as an online-only entity.
