CBS Trades Out WPEG and WBAV V101.9 For Stations in Philly and Miami
Under CBS Radio, management's philosophy has been to favor local shows and on-air personalities at most of their radio stations particularly their urbans like V103 in Atlanta, WPGC in D.C., as well as WPEG with The Morning Maddhouse. (It was the main reason Frank Ski was not offered a new contract at V103. He asked for a syndicated deal from CBS during negotiations and they decided to stay local with Ryan Cameron.) An exception of course was with Urban AC station V101.9. They dropped their local morning show a few years ago and brought in the Steve Harvey Morning Show. Charlotte was the only market where CBS Radio operated two full service urban stations. There's no telling at this point what Beasley will do with the two urban stations in Charlotte. The multi-station trade between CBS and Beasley is pending approval from the FCC.
