CBS Ends Shortlived Gov.Biz Radio In Washington For More Sports
CBS’ attempt at a Government focused Business station in Washington, DC is done after just four months.
“1580 Gov.Biz Radio” WNEW Morningside MD/Washington DC will flip to a 24/7 simulcast of CBS Sports Radio on Monday, January 28. The flip will coincide with the network’s around the clock coverage of Super Bowl XLVII.
WNEW launched the “Gov.Biz” format to be sold in tandem with All-News 99.1 WNEW-FM to help take revenue from Hubbard Radio’s “Federal News Radio” 1500 WFED. The station aired a combination of business news, financial advice, and local government news.
With the change to the national “CBS Sports Radio” programming, WNEW will change call letters to WJFK to match sister “106.7 The Fan” WJFK-FM.
