Changes In Huntsville, AL
April 6, 2006 at 7:28 AM (PT)
ALL ACCESS told you back in FEBRUARY (2/24) that URBAN BROADCASTING Country WLAY/TUSCUMBIA, AL was assumed by CLEAR CHANNEL. CC is not only flipping the format, but also moving the station as it becomes Variety Hits WQRV (100.3 THE RIVER)/MERIDIANVILLE, AL. The change became effective last night (4/5) at 5p (CT) along with quite a few other changes in the market.
Meanwhile URBAN BROADCASTING retains the WLAY calls and Country format, moving it to another frequency.
CC Oldies WWXQ/HUNTSVILLE has been assumed by CUMULUS and begins simulcasting News Talk WVNN-A/ATHENS, AL. WWXQ will also relinquish those call-letters, switching to WVNN-F. Also assumed by CUMULUS is CC Oldies WXQW/MERIDIANVILLE. The station will move to GURLEY, AL and will simulcast Urban AC WHRP/TULLAHOMA, TN.
