CCME flips WPGB-FM Pittsburgh to Country
Perhaps this is why Quinn and Rose were not renewed at the news-talker, to the dismay of basically their entire audience. WPGB has flipped to Country 8/7 as “Big 104.7, Pittsburgh’s New Hot Country,” putting it in direct competition with CBS Radio’s heritage WDSY-FM and Keymarket’s Froggy trimulcast in the region that includes Pittsburgh and Wheeling, WV. The station will air Premiere Networks’ Bobby Bones Show in the Fall.
Said David Edgar, CCME/Pittsburgh VP/Programming: “It’s a great day for Pittsburgh Country music fans as we launch Big 104.7, a fresh new take on Country music. This station will give our listeners a front-row WPGB’s talk format is moving to Radio Partners, LLC which recently acquired heritage Adult Standards WJAS-AM 1320. The station began with a simulcast Rush Limbaugh at noon. Morning host David “Bloomdaddy” Bloomquist (who flags from CCME’s WWVA-AM Wheeling), Sean Hannity and Glenn Beck are also moving over.
RBR-TVBR observation: We wonder how long it will take for Quinn and Rose to eventually come back. This would be the place.
