On November 6, 93.3 WROO Callahan/Jacksonville, FL dropped its Country format for All-Christmas. It now looks like we know what will head to 93.3 after the holidays. The image above located at http://www.wjbt.com/cc-common/station_logos/DEV_WJBT-FM.jpg indicates that the Urban format of sister 92.7 WJBT will shift to 93.3. Additionally, 933thebeatjams.com and 933thebeatjamz.com were registered back in July to a Clear Channel employee. Clear Channel had previously announced it was selling the 92.7 frequency as part of its privatization sale.
It’s not major news this time of the year when a station goes all-Christmas. There are always exceptions to the rule and in this case with “Rooster Country 93.3” WROO in Jacksonville, FL dropping its Country format for “Continuous Christmas Classics”. WROO has become the #3 Country station in Jacksonville behind perennial powerhouse and Clear Channel sister 99.1 WQIK and Renda’s 99.9 WGNE. We’d expect a new format to ring in 2008 on 93.3.
