Zoo Communications Dance “Revolution” and iHeartMedia Country “93.5 The Bull” have swapped locations in Fort Lauderdale. Revolution moves to 93.5 W228BV Fort Lauderdale, which Revolution purchased from Reach Communications earlier this year for $410,000. The move allows Zoo to sync the Revolution format on three 93.5 licenses as it also airs on WZFL Islamorada/Key Largo and iHeart owned 93.5 W228BY Miami via 100.7 WHYI-HD2.

With its 0.1 share in the October 2016 ratings, the format merely exists to give the syndicated Bobby Bones Show another major market clearance.
