Journal Moving WCYQ Country Format To WNOX Frequency
May 1, 2013 at 4:17 AM (PT)
JOURNAL's acquisition of Talk WNOX/OAK RIDGE-KNOXVILLE from OAK RIDGE FM, INC. is about to close, and the company is telling listeners to follow the Talk format to BLOUNT BROADCASTING CORP.'s Classic Country daytimer WKVL-A starting TODAY (5/1).
JOURNAL has received approval to simulcast its Country WCYQ on WNOX's frequency for two weeks starting TOMORROW (5/2), with the FCC granting a waiver in an APRIL 25th letter, allowing WCYQ two weeks' waiver of the program duplication prohibition. WCYQ's format will move to the more powerful WNOX signal, with the existing WCYQ signal getting a new format after the transitional period.
WNOX is airing a FOX NEWS political history special, news reports, and commercials along with promos informing listeners of the change and inviting listeners to find their favorite talk shows on AM 850.
