After stunting with new acquisition WBGB (106.5)/JACKSONVILLE the past few days (NET NEWS 9/19), COX announces that, come tomorrow (9/21) at 5a, the station will flip to a simulcast of crosshall sister Talk WOKV-A.
Commented COX/JACKSONVILLE Market Manager BILL HENDRICH, "The acquisition of WBGB-FM has allowed us to expand the reach of WOKV’s very successful AM News/Talk station. This simulcast represents a tremendous growth opportunity. We look forward to introducing the COX RADIO brand to our newest listeners in the JACKSONVILLE market."
"The WOKV simulcast greatly enhances our ability to serve and reach JACKSONVILLE radio listeners," said WOKV PD MIKE DORWART. "While the WOKV brand has entered the FM spectrum, we remain focused on being JACKSONVILLE’s top station for news, traffic, weather, and talk!"
