CHESAPEAKE-PORTSMOUTH BROADCASTING CORP. recently flipped Spanish WRJR-A (RADIO VIDA)/PORTSMOUTH, VA (which it has been LMAing from ABC) to Gospel as SPIRIT 1010, but with the station reportedly scheduled to go dark by the end of MAY due to its expanded radio frequency, the company has inked an LMA deal with the trustee running WBVA-A and WVAB-A/VIRGINIA BEACH and has started a simulcast of noncommercial Contemporary Christian WWIP for now (WBVA returned to the air the air, and WVBA is scheduled to return this week), according to VARTV.COM.
Could the SPIRIT end up on the revived WBVA-WVBA once WRJR goes dark? Stay tuned...
