From RadioInsight


After stunting all weekend with Christmas Music, iHeartMedias 93.3 W227CX
North Palm Beach/92.1 WRLX-HD2 West Palm Beach has returned to Country as
Wave 93.3.

The station is now being programmed separately from Wave 92.7 WAVW
Stuart/Port St. Lucie exclusively targeting the West Palm Beach market. The
daytime airstaff remains identical on both stations with Bobby Bones in
mornings, Heath West in middays, and Eric Hunter in afternoons, while
Premium Choice content will be heard the rest of the day.

iHeartMedia West Palm Beach debuted the new WAVE 93.3, No. 1 for New
Country, effective immediately.

WAVE 93.3 will broadcast the latest in Country music, including songs from
artists such as Little Big Town, Sam Hunt, Jason Aldean, Carrie Underwood,
Tim McGraw, Kenny Chesney, Thomas Rhett and others. The station will also
feature The Bobby Bones Show and on-air personality Eric Hunter and others.

iHeartMedia West Palm Beach is a leading media outlet in the Palm Beach
market and its content is available across multiple platforms, including
its broadcast stations; online via its branded digital sites; mobile; and
social, with nationwide listening through iHeartRadio, the all-in-one

QUOTE: “WAVE 93.3 is home to The Bobby Bones Show and today’s best in
Country,” said*Rad Messick, Senior Vice President of Programming for
iHeartMedia’s South Florida Region. “We’re excited to bring the community a
fresh choice for Country in the Palm Beaches.”

PROGRAMMING:

The Bobby Bones Show 6 – 10 a.m.

Heath West 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Eric Hunter 3 – 8 p.m.

Original Report 3/29: iHeartMedias 93.3 W227CX North Palm Beach/92.1
WRLX-HD2 West Palm Beach has dropped its simulcast of Country Wave 92.7
WAVW Stuart/Port St. Lucie and is now stunting with Christmas Music.

W227CX had begun simulcasting WAVW in January 2016 to give an in-market
Country competitor to Alpha Medias 103.1 WIRK. It never made much of any
impact in the market, registering a mere 0.1 share in each of the last
three PPM monthlies.
