Clear Channel Active Rock “X106.3” WAMX Mlton/Huntington, WV has flipped to Classic Rock “106.3 The Brew“. The change surprisingly gives Huntington its only Classic Rock formatted station. The move also differentiates the station from Fifth Avenue Broadcasting’s Active Rock “Planet 92.7/98.5” WCMI-FM/W253BB, which has the extra incentive of covering the whole market. WAMX previously simulcast on 107.1 WLRX Ironton, OH to reach the western portions of the market, but that station flipped to Comedy in October 2012.
Fifth Avenue Broadcasting Company, owners of four stations in Huntington, WV/Ashland, KY has agreed to purchase the two stations in the market owned by Connoisseur Media for $1.3 Million. Connoisseur’s AC “Magic 97.9” WMGA and Classic Country “Big Buck Country 101.5” WXBW will join Fifth Avenue’s existing cluster of News/Talk “Super Talk 94.1” 930 WRVC/94.1 W231BS, Sports “ESPN 1340” WCMI, Rock “Planet 92.7/98.5” WCMI-FM/W253BB, and Country “93.7 The Dawg” WDGG.
