I was an avid listener of 92.7 when it played Gospel music, but when I turned on my radio this morning I was quite shocked to find out that I can no longer listen to Gospel Music. This was a very good Gospel Station and I do not believe we need another R&B station. Could you possibly look into playing Gospel Music now that you have purchased it, it would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

I am glad I'm not the only one. PLEASE bring back our gospel. You just don't know how hard it is to wait until Sunday morning to get your gospel fix. There are so many gospel artists so talented who cannot get the same air time that R&B, hiphop, rap. I like Beyonce and Neo, but please, I need a break, I need my gospel, please just one station. If you don't, I may just start my own station.

The reason why Flagler County Broadcasting got rid of the "Hallelujah 92.7" is to eventually move the station south into the Palm Coast area. However, there is a station, WFJO (92.5) in Folkston, GA that can move to the south after they move 92.7. Currently, the station's signal is extremely weak south of I-10 expressway in Jacksonville. Right now, the station is owned by Tama Broadcasting,which is in some financial trouble at the moment but the station is now operated by Seven Bridges radio. The station is now a Progressive Talk Station and it is part of a three station network with sister stations WHJX (105.7 FM) in Baldwin, FL serving the Jacksonville market and WSJF (105.5 FM), which serves the St. Augustine area. To make a long story short, WFJO can move south and become an urban gospel station that will have the signal strength to serve the Jacksonville market. Furthermore, they can also use the majority of their programming from the "Rejoice Musical Soulfood" satellite network and broadcast the nationally-syndicated "Yolanda Adams Morning Show", which features the gospel singer as the shows host, in order to keep operating costs low.
