Update 2/25: AC “My 107.3” WYCL Pensacola is the winner of the “Groove” derby. The station is running sweepers promoting a flip at 8:00am Friday as well as directing current listeners to sister “Lite Mix 99.9” WMXC in neighboring Mobile, AL.
1073TheGroove.com is already redirecting to WYCL’s current website.
Original Post 2/20: In October we had one of our rare NetGnome whiffs when we predicted that “107.3 Planet Radio” WPLA Jacksonville, FL was on the verge of a flip to Classic Rock “107.3 The Brew“. Instead it was sister KTHR Wichita, KS that relaunched as “The Brew”. Now Clear Channel is planning to flip another 107.3, as it has registered 1073TheGroove.com, presumably for a Rhythmic AC like the recently launched “105.7 The Groove” in Atlanta.
Our guess lies with the struggling WPLA or the format of the month WHTK Rochester, however we’re not willing to rule out any of the other stations Clear Channel owns on the frequency (all of which are listed on our poll below).
