History Of WREM
Formerly WHHL, which began broadcasting in Orlando as an oldies station in 1977, WREM took on new call letters and a new format, the syndicated "Music of Your Life," when it changed ownership in July 1982. WREM will be headed locally by Jim Shipley, who until a year and a half ago was co-owner of WHLY-FM 106.7 ("Y-106"). Shipley, who recently sold his interest in two Charlotte, N.C., stations, will be operations manager at WREM.
