WAKW/Cincinnati (Star 93.3) has flipped to all-Christmas music.  

Oasis FM, a new Christian Community Radio Station,  is on the air from the Sarah Baartman District in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa. It will broadcast in all of the seven local municipalities: Kouga, KouKamma, Ndlambe, Makana, Dr Beyers Naudé, Baviaans and Blue Crane Route.

Station Manager André Swartz says, “The long-term plan is to have satellite studios in each of the seven municipalities. “This will put the radio in near reach of everyone in the district and the station’s signal will cover nearly 36% of the Eastern Cape.”

According to Swartz, who has 21 years’ experience in the radio industry, the radio station will provide a broadcast platform for relevant programming aimed at bringing hope, restoring values and educating the listeners. “Oasis FM aims to serve the people with the gospel of Jesus Christ, wholesome family orientated programming and a diversity of music that will suit different tastes.”

KJAK/Lubbock, TX  “92.7 Spirit of the South Plains”  has been sold to VCY America for $550k.
