WPGC-AM to announce new programming


CBS Radio DC blown up the inspirational talk format on WPGC-AM (1580) “Heaven 1580” and has replaced it with a simulcast of its Urban WPGC-FM.

“The simulcast is not permanent, but we are not prepared to announce the direction with which we will be going,” GM Sam Rogers tells RBR. Rogers says he is taking into consideration our suggestion of Reggae/Caribbean.
WPGC-HD-2, which has been gospel music, was replaced in June, with a totally local station called “Crank”.  Crank features only those artists native to the DC area, or those that have had a huge impact on the area.
