ADVENTURE RADIO Adult Hits WGCO (JACK-FM)/SAVANNAH flipped back to "OLDIES 98.3" today (3/16). The station had flipped from Oldies to JACK in OCTOBER 2005.
"We've been dealing with the outpouring from the community for the past year and a half," said OM SUSAN GROVES. "We knew that OLDIES 98.3 was a well-loved heritage station, but we underestimated how much the SAVANNAH and HILTON HEAD audience truly wanted this station."
Former PD/morning Man CHUCK "BOOM BOOM" CANNON is back in both posts. He said, "I first came to this town in 1976 and then back to SAVANNAH as PD of OLDIES 98.3 in 1997. I know how much this station means to the listeners and clients, and I couldn’t be more excited to bring it back!"
GM ROBERT LEONARD said, "It was a tough decision to get rid of OLDIES 98.3. We thought we were doing the best thing, but it turns out the best thing was to give the community what they want -- OLDIES 98.3 back."
