Remember when WFME converted its license from non-commercial to commercial earlier this year? It may have taken most of 2012, but WFME has found a buyer in Cumulus:
WFME was the last commercial band FM in Family Stations portfolio following sales of stations in Maryland and Philadelphia last year. The station will now join a Cumulus cluster that includes Talk 770 WABC and Adult CHR 95.5 WPLJ along with a few suburban stations.
At this point, speculations are being widely… um… speculated. With the future departure of WRXP, a new rock station could be in the future. Country music is also an option. There’s also an option of another talk format. Could it be a WABC simulcast? Could it be sports? I’m kind of hoping it’s not sports, because there doesn’t really need to be three sports stations on FM, despite the various sports teams vying for radio exposure.
We won’t know what will be coming to 94.7 until December/January, so feel free to make your own speculations.
What do you think? Will 94.7 become the home of rock, country, talk, or something else?
