December 26, 2014 at 1:22 PM (PT)
A few eyebrows were raised when on DEC. 4th, CBS RADIO-turned-BEASLEY BROADCASTING Sports WHFS (98.7 THE FAN)/TAMPA dropped its format for CHRISTMAS music (NET NEWS, 12/4). The station began teasing a “Big Announcement” for MONDAY, JANUARY 5th, 2015, which coincidentally is when BUBBA THE LOVE SPONGE’s non-compete with COX ends -- which in turn has fueled rumors of his debut on the station.
As for the new format of what's being dubbed as "The New 98.7," the station is stunting with a variety of pop hits, while its new website is asking listeners to choose from a variety of formats and brands, such as "98.7 The Wave," "98.7 The Buzz," "Power 98.7," "98.7 Jamz," "Now 98.7" and "98.7 The Hog," among others.
