EMF Broadcasting is swapping the license of 97.5 WLVM Mobile to Cumulus for “Classic Hits 97.1” WRQQ Belle Meade/Nashville. WRQQ is one of two Nashville stations Cumulus was required to spin-off in order to complete its merger with Citadel Broadcasting last year.

EMF will begin operating WRQQ via a Time Brokerage Agreement by Monday, July 16. It will join a crowded Christian music battle with Way Media’s “88.7 Way-FM” WAYM and Salem’s “94 The Fish” 93.7 WFFI/94.1 WFFH

  1. Wouldn’t selling WRQQ allow Cumulus to pull 92Q (WQQK) out of the Volt Trust, leaving only i106 (WNFN) in there?

    • Cumulus should be able to pull WQQK or WNFN out of the trust once the sale of WRQQ closes.
