West Palm Beach Signal Shuffle On June 1

Update 6/1: The frequency swap took place at 12am as WIRK and Sunny moved to new frequencies and “Smooth FM 104.3” launched as a placeholder on 104.3 as it prepares to be sold and moved to Miami.

Original Report 4/10: CBS has agreed to sell its five West Palm Beach stations to Palm Beach Broadcasting for $50 Million.
