JVC BROADCASTING has launched LONG ISLAND’s newest radio station, "OLDIES 98.1 FM," on WPTY-HD2 and translator W251BY/GORDON HEIGHTS, NY. The new OLDIES 98 signed on MONDAY, NOVEMBER 21st and is playing the best hits of the 60s, 70s and 80s, and all commercial free.
“OLDIES 98 is a complete JVC team effort, when I tell you that we had help putting this station together from our staff in ORLANDO, GAINESVILLE, OCALA and WEST PALM BEACH, it is an understatement. The entire JVC BROADCASTING team put this radio station together and made it the way radio used to be, fun. Lots of jingles, lots of voices and all the hits all the time. The station has been researched and designed exclusively for SUFFOLK COUNTY”, says OM CHARLIE LOMBARDO. “We spent weeks talking to our listeners, partners and community leaders and found there is no need for another ‘cookie-cutter’ radio station. This area has a rich musical heritage that is unserved and OLDIES 98 fills that void.”
JVC/LONG ISLAND VP/COO VIC LATINO adds, “This is great music that just makes you feel good. The listeners of LONG ISLAND say they want more variety and a different sounding station. We will tap into the deep musical heritage here by highlighting those big artists and hits that just don’t get played anymore.”
JVC CEO/Pres. JOHN CARACCIOLO said, “JVC BROADCASTING is, and always will be dedicated to giving all of our clients, both advertisers and listeners, the best product possible. The new OLDIES 98 will be a radio station specifically for SUFFOLK COUNTY LONG ISLAND. With the mix of music and fun that the entire team created, and this was a huge JVC team effort, this station is going to be on every preset. Both VIC and I are very proud of what the staff created. This is fun radio!”
