Sunrise Broadcasting has assumed operations of 95.9 W240AS Wilmington, NC.
Upon replacing Hometown Wilmington Media has the lessee of the translator, Sunrise has flipped it to Sports simulcasting “ESPN 630” WMFD. The 250 watt translator is owned by Sea-Comm Media.
The move explains why Hometown Wilmington flipped 103.7 WBNE from Classic Rock to being the FM side of the News “Port City Radio” simulcast with 1180 WLTT last month. W240AS had served that purpose previously.
