Beasley Expands ESPN Offering
Beasley Broadcast’s WWCN(AM) ESPN sports talker in Fort Myers/Naples, Fla.,
has made the move to FM.
It will still be heard on 770 kHz but it can now be heard across several southwest Florida jurisdictions
on FM simulcast. The listings are 98.1 MHz for the South Fort Myers/Estero
area; 101.5 for Bonita Springs and North Naples; and 105.1 for Naples and Marco
Island. Bonus coverage includes the HD2 for rocker WRXK(FM).
The three added signals are lower-power translators purchased from Reach
Communications last summer. WWCN carries the ESPN Radio programming lineup
along with the games of numerous South Florida teams: Miami Heat, Miami
Marlins, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Tampa Bay Rays, Tampa Bay Lightning and colleges
U. of Miami and Northern Florida’s Florida State.
Vice President and Market Manager Brad Beasley called it “a big
deal for SW Florida sports enthusiasts. For the past 12 years, the only
way to hear sports in our community has been on the AM dial. Now our loyal
listeners can also follow their favorite teams and events at multiple locations
on the FM dial …”
