A Resurrected Floridian Gets A New Owner


In November 2016, RBR+TVBR reported on the resurrection of a Class C 1kw AM radio station that some 40 years ago was ranked No. 1 in the Fort Lauderdale Arbitron ratings.

By 1986, the station lingered in the mid 1-share range following the combination of Miami and Fort Lauderdale into a single market. By the mid-2000s, it took on a Caribbean format. It was then a short-lived ESPN Radio affiliate, and also aired Classic Country and Brazilian programming before going dark.

The station was brought back to life under broker Mark Jorgenson, and he’s now sold his heritage facility and its FM translator to a non-secular broadcaster.
