WLRN To Operate NPR For Palm Beaches
Following the sale of Classical South Florida’s stations to Educational Media Foundation, 91.3 WLRN Miami has come to an agreement to retain the Public News/Talk programming on 101.9 W270AD/WFLV-HD2 West Palm Beach.
Currently branded as “WPBI News“, the station will be relaunched as “101.9, NPR For The Palm Beaches” as WLRN leases the HD2 and translator from EMF. WLRN is owned by the School Board of Miami-Dade County and also operates WLRN-TV Miami, 91.5 WKWM Key West and three translators serving the remainder of the Florida Keys. Following the demise of Classical South Florida, WLRN launched a Classical programming service on its HD2 to serve the Miami market.
WLRN will begin operating W270AD at a yet-to-be announced date in November.
