WCGO Goes Dark, WONX -- Now WCGO -- Ups Power

The end is finally here for KOVAS COMMUNICATIONS Adult Standards WCGO-A/CHICAGO HEIGHTS, IL, which has gone silent to allow the upgrade of sister Ethnic Brokered WONX-A/EVANSTON.
The move gives WONX the ability to upgrade to 7,000 watts daytime; KOVAS previously took WKKD-A/AURORA, IL and WMCW-A/HARVARD, IL dark to facilitate the upgrade. WCGO has a construction permit to move to JENISON, MI (GRAND RAPIDS) as a 10,000-watt daytimer.
And with WCGO going dark, WONX turned up the juice to increase to 7,000 watts, and has adopted the WCGO calls. TIM DISA, KOVAS COMMUNICATIONS broker and spokesperson, notes that the power increase comes on what would have been company founder FRANK KOVAS' 87th birthday (he passed away several years ago while working on the project).
