True Oldies Moves In West Palm Beach

Following the sale of 93.5 WBGF Belle Glade FL, JVC Broadcasting has moved the True Oldies Channel programming in the West Palm Beach market. Soft AC “95.9 The Palm” 960 WSVU North Palm Beach/95.9 W240CI North Palm Beach/106.9 W295BJ Jupiter dropped its format on Tuesday and picked up the syndicated Oldies programming that had been heard on 93.5 WBGF and 92.5 W223CJ West Palm Beach. We are awaiting confirmation on what programming W223CJ is carrying now. WSVU registered a 0.7 share in the July 2017 Nielsen Audio ratings trending down from a 1.2 in May. WBGF’s Oldies format, which launched in January, held a 0.3 share.
