RUBBER CITY RADIO GROUP Smooth Jazz WNWV (THE WAVE)/CLEVELAND has also become an affiliate of BROADCAST ARCHICTECTURE's 'Smooth FM" AC format, which will air on nights and weekends, as well as the the SMOOTH JAZZ TOP 20 COUNTDOWN on SATURDAY mornings.
"From the moment we decided to bring THE WAVE back to CLEVELAND, we knew that THE SMOOTH Network was going to be part of our plans," RUBBER CITY RADIO GROUP SVP/Exec. Dir. of Operations NICK ANTHONY stated: "Having the network talent available to us in CLEVELAND and customizable with our music library is great. ALLEN and STEVE have been remarkable in their customer service. THE SMOOTH Network is part of our team at CLEVELAND’s SMOOTH FM, 107.3 THE WAVE, and the response has been overwhelming! Hundreds of calls, e-mails, letters, and FACEBOOK posts welcoming us back to CLEVELAND has made it all the better."
"What a thrill to be involved with NICK and his team in bringing THE WAVE back to over 275,000 listeners that were disenfranchised when the station went away last year," BROADCAST ARCHITECTURE Owner/Pres. ALLEN KEPLER said. "NICK and his local team are doing a wonderful job and we’re proud to have our network programming on The WAVE. Including our recent flip to Smooth Jazz on KOY-A/PHOENIX, this marks our fifth return of the format in the past few months."
