I was on my way to Panama City passing by Ocala and i just heard 99.7 on the air. It seems like they are going for a soft music format.
They are doing English Adult Standards from what I was listening to the other day.
WGMA-FM in Silver Springs Shores, FL is on the air with the name Gold 99 FM.
Playing America's Best Music Adult Standards Format from Westwood One.
Apparently they are waiting on the purchase of WBXY-FM from Asterisk Communications to close to begin simulcasting.
And a very familiar name on this board is listed on the website as GM/LSM. Congratulations to OK Walters!!
Thanks, Nostalgia. I left WLBE 790 in much better shape than when I got it and took this opportunity when offered to enter a larger market on FM. The Arroyos are veteran broadcasters and we are expecting good things from this combo, even if it is a brand new station starting from zero. Big change from worrying about old AM equipment to everything being brand new with state of the art equipment. It has been a learning experience watching the station be built by pros, and I have to say the Nautel transmitter we have is truly amazing. It will be interesting to see how the standards format does.
I wish you good luck with the new stations. I hope the FCC gets on the ball and approves the transfer so we can hear you in Gainesville!
Set a preset on my car today. Finally a station I can enjoy in Ocala.
