Augusta Radio: iHM Moving Classic Rock To 106.3 FM

Augusta’s iHeartMedia radio station group said Monday that it will be moving its “Eagle” classic rock station to a translator signal W292EE 106.3 FM (250 watts, via WLUB 105.7 HD2) dropping classic country.

iHM is in the process of selling the Eagle’s previous station, WEKL 102.3 FM, to the Educational Media Foundation, a nonprofit Christian music radio network.

The rock station will be simulcast on both frequencies until the Educational Media Foundation takes over WEKL, said Cliff Bennett, iHeartMedia’s Augusta program director.

Eagle broadcasts rock music from the early 1970s to the early 2000s, featuring artists such as Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Tom Petty, Van Halen and Foo Fighters. It also broadcasts the long-running “John Boy & Billy Big Show” morning program.

“It’s been 25 years since Eagle first came on air,” Bennett said in a news release. “Yes, we’ve moved a couple of times around the dial, but rock music never dies. We just couldn’t take this great and long-running station away from all its fans and loyal listeners in the Augusta river region.”

Full Programming Lineup:
  • BMan John Beaulieu 12 a.m. – 6 a.m.
  • John Boy & Billy Big Show 6 a.m. –10 a.m.
  • Cliff Bennett 10 a.m. – 12 p.m.
  • Maria Milito 12 p.m. – 3 p.m.
  • Ken Dashow 3 p.m. – 7 p.m.
  • Big Rig 7 p.m. – 12 a.m.
The company’s other Augusta stations include WBBQ-FM, WLUB-FM, WKSP-FM, WPRW-FM and WYNF-AM.
