WMFV Takes To The Air 3-18-18
The new station WMFV-FM
89.5, sister station to WMFE-FM 90.7, went on
the air for the first time on Saturday, March 3. The station, which covers The
Villages, Leesburg and The Golden Triangle (Eustis, Mount Dora and Tavares), was
officially born in March but is not yet operating at full power. WMFV’s
engineer is still working to resolve some transmission issues. WMFV President
and General Manager LaFontaine Oliver said; “Our goal is to create a station
that will resonate with the community and so we have to be very intentional.”
Oliver said they began broadcasting with a soft launch format that includes
NPR’s two newsmagazines, Morning Edition and All Things
Considered, and classical music. The programming schedule will
continue to evolve with feedback that is received.
Happy Anniversary and
