After stunting with the sounds of nature for a few days, Burbach Broacasting flipped Rock “Rock 105.7” WOBG-FM Salem/Clarksburg WV to CHR “Hot 105.7” WHTI on Thursday. The station has picked up the syndicated Elvis Duran Show for mornings. Original Report 1/23: A format change is in process at Burbach Broadcasting Rock “Rock 105.7” WOBG-FM Salem/Clarksburg WV. The station, which has featured a Rock format since 1990, is currently stunting with the sound of crickets chirping in preparation of debuting a new format. No word on what is next for the station yet, but it did change call letters to WHTI on Monday.
With the addition of the WCLG-FM simulcast on 102.3, the Classic Rock format and calls of 102.3 WFBY will move to West Virginia Radio Corporation’s 93.5 WBTQ Buckhannon replacing the simulcast of Talk 1440 WAJR Morgantown/103.3 WAJR-FM Salem/Clarksburg. Original Report 1/24: With Burbach Broadcasting pulling the plug on “Rock 105.7” WOBG-FM Salem/Clarksburg WV, AJG Corporation is moving quickly to fill the hole. Active Rock 100.1 WCLG-FM Morgantown WV will begin simulcasting on 102.3 WFBY Weston/Clarksburg on Wednesday, January 31. WFBY currently operates as Classic Rock “102.3 The FBY“. The company has applied for new WBTQ call letters for WFBY.
West Virginia Radio Corporation flipped AC “Magic 106.5” WWLW Clarksburg WV to Classic Hits “Sky 106.5” on Labor Day. The station’s airstaff remains in-tact with the change. WWLW ranked fourth in the Morgantown-Clarksburg-Fairmont market with a 5.2 share in the Spring 2016 Nielsen Audio ratings, but the new format creates considerable overlap with AJG Corporation’s “Classic Top 40 93.1” WFGM Barrackville, which is in a JSA with West Virginia Radio Corporation. That station registered a 1.8 share in the Spring ratings.
Withers Broadcasting has flipped Variety Hits 104.1 WETT Bridgeport/Clarksburg, WV to AC “Mix 104“. The new format positions WETT directly against West Virginia Radio Corp’s “Magic 106.5” WWLW Clarksburg. That move is doubled by the addition of former WWLW morning host Jack Logar for the same duties at “Mix 104“. Logar exited WWLW at the end of 2014. In addition to WETT, Withers operates a pair of television stations in the Clarksburg market: CBS affiliate WDTV 5 and Fox affiliate WVFX 10.
