WPLA Flips From 'Planet Radio' To 'Magic 107.3' In Jacksonville
August 5, 2010 at 11:28 AM (PT)
CLEAR CHANNEL Alternative WPLA (PLANET RADIO)/JACKSONVILLE has nuked the format, and become an Oldies station positioned as "MAGIC 107.3 -- The Greatest Hits of All Time." Artists include THE BEACH BOYS, KC AND THE SUNSHINE BAND, BILLY JOEL, ROD STEWART, ELTON JOHN and MOTOWN music.
"We are pleased to be able to bring the popular 'Greatest Hits' format to one of FLORIDA’s largest cities -- it’s a fun, constantly upbeat sound that keeps listeners in the ‘groove’ with their favorite music all day and night," said JACKSONVILLE Market Manager BARBARA LATHAM. "The JACKSONVILLE market has a diverse mix of station formats, but is lacking a quality format that speaks to music fans of all ages. We’re bringing MAGIC to the market to fill that void and give listeners the music they’ve always loved."
Syndicated PLANET RADIO personalities, including LEX & TERRY, can continue to be heard on the Internet at iheartradio.com, as well as on the iheartradio mobile application.
