GENESIS COMMUNICATIONS has flipped former Sports WHBO-A to Oldies, airing ABC RADIO's Timeless Music format. The new "Mega Memories AM 1470" features artists such as BARRY MANILOW, BARBRA STREISAND, THE CARPENTERS, SIMON & GARFUNKEL, PERRY COMO and FRANK SINATRA.
"This addition to our News/Talk and Sports stations gives our company the best three radio stations in Tampa Bay to meet the 25-64 demo," GENESIS EVP LUIS ALBERTINI said. "Our advertisers are delighted with the additional distribution opportunity to advertise their products and services." The company will also make an announcement soon regarding local talent on the station.
As reported earlier (NET NEWS, 11/21), GENESIS' Sports format can still be heard on 1040-A, as the Talk format once heard there shifted to WMGG-A 820.
