The answer to the question of what MILLENIUM RADIO GROUP would do with Sports WENJ-A/ATLANTIC CITY when its Sports format moved to sister WXKW-F (now WENJ-F, 97.3 ESPN-FM) has been answered with the AM's flip to Spanish Sports as 1450 ESPN DEPORTES.
"ATLANTIC CITY's large and growing Hispanic population makes Deportes a logical choice," said Market Manager MIKE RUBLE. "Listeners and advertisers will both benefit from this new choice on the radio dial."
