BROADCAST ARCHITECTURE is found another outpost for its Smooth Jazz Network format in ORLANDO. Much like its earlier launch of The OASIS in DETROIT (NET NEWS, 4/20), Smooth Jazz can now be heard on FM transmitter 102.5, which is owned by CLEAR CHANNEL, with a simulcast on 107.7 WMGF hd-2
"We are thrilled to be in a position to bring Smooth Jazz from BROADCAST ARCHITECTURE back to CENTRAL FLORIDA," CLEAR CHANNEl Pres./Market Manager LINDA BYRD said. "Today it’s very easy to deliver a format to its listeners via HD, FM, online and mobile. And that’s exactly what we are doing."
"We’re delighted to be able to provide local Jazz music fans with such a well-produced product that is clearly at the top of its game," added CLEAR CHANNEL/ORLANDO PD KEN PAYNE.
"We are grateful for the opportunity to assist CLEAR CHANNEL/ORLANDO in bringing SMOOTH JAZZ music back for the over 200,000 listeners disenfranchised by the recent switch of WLOQ," BROADCAST ARCHITECTURE Owner/Pres. ALLEN KEPLER said. "This marks our third return of the format this year! Recent convert Smooth Jazz 104.7, The OASIS in DETROIT is already reaching over 130,000 listeners and KBDB-A/RENO debuted with a 1.0 share, which truly shows the format’s potential on an AM signal."
