Changes At Oasis Radio Group In Fort Wayne
September 28, 2011 at 11:18 AM (PT)
OASIS RADIO GROUP has launched WHPP, a new Urban station in FT. WAYNE, IN. Previously FM Talk WJOE (“THE TRUTH”), the station is actually licensed to COLUMBIA CITY, IN. Sister Country WBTU (US 93.3) afternoon personality COLIN SHAUGHNESSY takes on WHPP's PD duties, as former Talk WJOE PD CHARLOTTE BURKE takes the PD gig at WBTU.
WHHP is using McVAY MEDIA and MICHAEL ANSTANDIG’s Listener Driven Radio (LDR) technology. FT. WAYNE has an African-American population of 8% and while there are no Urban stations currently serving the market, there are two Top 40/Rhythmics -- WJFX (HOT 107.9), owned by OASIS; and SUMMIT’s WNHT (WILD96.9).
