Tampa Bay's WSJT Flips Format from Smooth Jazz to Hit Music
Tuesday August 31, 2010
Tampa Bay's FM dial lost a Smooth Jazz radio station today and gained a
a new Hit Music one. At 3 p.m. this afternoon WSJT-FM flipped format to
"Play 98.7." According to a news release the station "will broadcast
'today's best hits, without the rap' and feature popular music from
artists such as Katy Perry, Kings of Leon, Train, John Mayer, Maroon 5,
and Rob Thomas, among others." (Graphic: WSJT/Tampa)
Play 98.7 is also streaming online at www.play987.com and is available
on various mobile devices. The station is being programmed by Orlando
Davis, the Program Director and morning host for WiLD 94.1 (WLLD-FM).
Play 98.7 is owned by CBS Radio which operates 130 radio stations across
the United States.
For those fans of WSJT's former format, Smooth Jazz, they can still find
that programming but it will live at the station's secondary HD
frequency, WSJT 98.7 HD2 and online at www.wsjt.com.
