WZCC adds FM frequency; CHS football games will have new clarity

-A A +A

Suncoast Radio, Inc. owner of WZCC radio station in Cross City, is on the FM radio band with the acquisition of radio station W227AV in Newberry from Reach Communications of Fort Lauderdale.

The small FM station was re-broadcasting the signal from another station to the Newberry area, but now the station is located in Chiefland and will carry the WCZZ "The True Oldies Channel” on 93.3 mhz from the WLQH radio tower on Old Fannin Road.  

Testing of the new station began last weekend with the full time debut scheduled for Friday night at 7 p.m. when the first game of the Chiefland High School varsity football season will be broadcast. The Indians will be hosting the Wildwood Wildcats at C. Doyle McCall Field.

CHS football has been one of the most popular programs on the station but Federal Communications Commission rules required WZCC to reduce its signal in Chiefland at sunset.

Long time residents will remember when WLQH had to go off the air at sunset years ago.  The early sunset in winter months meant the loss of a lot of WZCC's audience as early as 5:30 pm between November and January.
