Are you sure? I know that they just updated their website (http://www.jamz1019.com/
) as did both 1500 WASN and 1330 WGFT and the station just got a resolution from the city of Youngstown (http://www.wytv.com/content/news/local/story/Radio-Station-Honored-By-Youngstown-City-Council/E6tNsfJq602v6EzP-pYb2Q.cspx
Youngstown City Council took time Wednesday to recognize the city's number one urban radio station.
During Wednesday's meeting, council members presented a resolution to Skip Bednarczyk. He is the market manager for WRBP-JAMZ 101.9 FM.
The resolution was in recognition of continued success in the urban format, and for keeping the radio station highly rated, profitable and on the air in Youngstown.
"This type of a format is going away in several markets, but because of the profitability, and the ratings success here, it's a viable factor in the marketplace," said Bednarczyk.
Bednarczyk said listeners can expect more new music, contests and community involvement from JAMZ in the coming weeks and months. They plan to partner with area churches, and put kids to work cleaning up around the city this summer.
I know there was a plan involving WASN-AM to be spun off and that WGFT-AM had got signal upgrades this past spring, but to be sold and leave the market without a urban format when they were the 5 th highest radio station in the market I think their is more to the story that just a simple sell.
Bernard sells 'JAMZ 101.9' to Educational Media Foundation for a measly $500,000. 500k for a decent class A signal. It will surely become K-Love or Air1 soon.
