History Of  WBHQ

In November of 2008, Flagler County Broadcasting LLC, agreed to buy WROO-FM 92.7, from the Aloha Trust (Clear Channel)  and would move that station to Flagler County from Green Cove Springs, to take advantage of the growth in the Palm Coast area. The station will complement the company's Flagler County news/talk station, WNZF-AM 1550 and WNZF-FM 106.3 which went on the air in August of 2008. WROO, had been a long-time country music station in Jacksonville. Clear Channel changed its format to gospel music earlier in 2008 after the company moved it from the 93.3 FM spot on the dial to 92.7.

  

Dan Connors checks in and adds to the history of the 92.7 frequency in Beverly Beach. "(92.7) signed on as WKUE in 1978 and was a progressive/album rock station licensed to Green Cove Springs , FL. It switched calls in 1982 to WSVE FM and became a gospel station under Bishop Willis and then it became WPDQ FM in 1987. The 1987 switch occurred when WPDQ AM 1460 in Jacksonville dropped those calls".

4-10-09 From Josh Wilson "...they are testing right now and simulcasting 101.5 in Jacksonville, but are putting in hints of the new format of Beach 92.7 FM at times.

4-25-09 The station went live April 24, 2009.
