WJXY Myrtle Beach Stunting As Sale Closes

Posted: 10 Feb 2017 06:53 AM PST

Colonial Media and Entertainment has closed on its $240,000 acquisition of
93.7 WXJY Georgetown and 93.9 WJXY-FM Conway/Myrtle Beach SC from Cumulus
Joule Broadcasting divestment trust.
With the closing Colonial has dropped the News/Talk format on both and
broke the simulcast. 93.7 WXJY has flipped to Gospel as Rejoice 93.7
duplicating the programming on new sister 1200 WMIR Atlantic Beach.
Meanwhile 93.9 WJXY has begun stunting with the hourly wheel of formats in
preparation of debuting its new format on Monday, February 13 at 3:00pm.
Among the hourly formats being spotlighted are Loveland 93.9 with love
songs, The Accordian with polkas, The Bowery with the band Alabama who were
discovered in Myrtle Beach, All-Christmas Santa 94, and All-Elvis The King
Colonial Media and Entertainment announced that the Company has closed on
its acquisition of two former Cumulus stations, WJXY (93.9FM) and WXJY
(93.7FM) in the Myrtle Beach market. The new stations become part of a
group that will include five FMs and two AMs in the fast-growing
southeastern US market.
The news-talk format on 93.9FM disappeared yesterday, replaced with an
hourly spin of the Wheel of Formats. Company Chairman/CEO Jeff Andrulonis
says there are several formats under consideration. “With Valentine’s Day
coming up, we’ve thought about an all love song format featuring Air
Supply, Barry Manilow, and even yacht rock from the 70s. We’d call it
Loveland 93.9FM. But then again, I’m a Pennsylvania native, so the
all-polka format is appealing to me. 93.9FM The Accordian would play Eddie
Stankey, Frankie Yankovic and the Pennsylvania Polka. We might even get
wild and crazy and play some Lawrence Welk and punk polka from Polkacide.
There are literally tens of people in the Myrtle Beach area who’d love The
Accordian.” Other formats that are on the Wheel of Formats include
All-Alabama as The Bowery 94 Stereo, All-Christmas (Santa 94) and All-Elvis
(The King 93.9FM). Andrulonis promises he’ll make a format decision on
Monday, 13 February, at 3pm, at the station’s new studios/offices at 4337
Big Barn Drive in Little River, South Carolina.
Meanwhile, as of Friday morning, 93.7FM WXJY is becoming “Georgetown’s
Inspiration Station” playing Urban Gospel music geared to the
African-American community in Georgetown County and surrounding areas.
Long time Myrtle Beach air personality on WMIR 1200AM, Reggie Dyson, is
also working on 93.7 Rejoice FM.
The new 93.9FM and 93-7 Rejoice FM join WMIR (heard on 103.5FM and 1200AM
in Atlantic Beach and coming soon to 95.5FM in Conway) and WNMB (heard on
900AM and coming this summer to FM) as part of Colonial’s efforts in the
Myrtle Beach market.

Arizona Diamondbacks Extend Rights Deal With 98.7 KMVP-FM

Posted: 10 Feb 2017 05:00 AM PST

Bonneville Sports Arizona Sports 98.7 KMVP-FM Phoenix will remain the
flagship station for the Arizona Diamondbacks through at least the 2022
KMVP and/or sister ESPN 620 KTAR Phoenix, which has carried the franchises
games since its inaugural 1998 season, will carry all regular season games.
Greg Schulte, Tom Candiotti and Mike Ferrin remain the broadcast team for
the games. Schulte has been the radio voice of the Diamondbacks since the
beginning, while Candiotti will be entering his 12th season as analyst and
Ferrin his second as pre and post-game show host and fill-in play-by-play
The Arizona Diamondbacks and Arizona Sports 98.7 have agreed to a five-year
extension that will keep Arizona Sports 98.7 as the official radio home of
the D-backs through 2022.
“There’s nothing like listening to baseball on the radio, and that’s why we
take great pride in being the exclusive D-backs radio partner since day
one,” said Scott Sutherland, VP/Market Manager of Bonneville/Phoenix. “We
are honored that Arizona Sports 98.7 FM will continue to broadcast D-backs
baseball for many years to come.”
Arizona Sports 98.7 features 12 hours of live, local programming each day
beginning with Doug Wolf (6 a.m. to 10 a.m.), Off the Edge with Bertrand
Berry (10 a.m. to 12 noon), Bickley Marotta (12 noon to 2 p.m. ) and
Burns Gambo (2 p.m. to 6 p.m.).
All 162 D-backs games every season can be heard on Arizona Sports 98.7 and
brother station ESPN Phoenix 620 AM with Greg Schulte, Tom Candiotti and
Mike Ferrin on the call.
“I’ve long believed that we have the best radio broadcast team in baseball
on the No. 1 sports station in the Southwest,” said D-backs President CEO
Derrick Hall. “We are thrilled to extend that partnership long-term
alongside some of the most well-known sports personalities in the Valley.”
Schulte, who has been behind the mic for every major moment in D-backs
history, returns to handle play-by-play duties for his 20th season, while
former big league pitcher Candiotti enters his 12th season as the D-backs’
radio color analyst. Ferrin will begin his second season as a member of the
D-backs’ broadcast team, serving as the secondary radio play-by-play
announcer and pre- and postgame show host.
Returning in 2017 is a half-hour postgame talk show called “Diamond Talk.”
The show, hosted by Ferrin, will follow the network postgame show after
most regular season home games, adding an additional 35 hours of D-backs
programming again this season.
“Diamond Talk” will include analysis of the game and interviews from the
clubhouse, while Ferrin will be joined each night by other members of the
D-backs broadcast team. Ferrin will also host “D-backs BP Show,” a pregame
show that starts half an hour before first pitch that features interviews,
analysis and late–breaking news from around Major League Baseball.
