Costa Eagle Radio Ventures has flipped Brokered Ethnic 1570 WCCM and its translator 105.3 W287CW Methuen MA to Classic Hits “Big 105.3“. Positioned as “The Biggest Hits of the 60s and 70s”, the station is utilizing Westwood One’s Good Time Oldies network with new WUBG call letters in place. The WCCM call letters have been moved to sister Spanish News/Talk “Impacto 1490” WCEC Haverhill. WUBG covers the northern suburbs of Boston including Lynn, Medford, Revere, and Woburn.
