Fort Walton Beach FL Radio: WECQ-FM To Flip to Alternative

JVC Media of Florida, one of America’s largest independent and locally owned broadcast and entertainment companies, has announced a new radio format for WECQ 92.1 FM in the Fort Walton Beach-Destin, FL market.  Beginning Wednesday September 1st, 2021 at 12pm CDT, 92.1 will be known as ROCK 92.1 – The Gulf Coast Rock Alternative, playing an Active Rock format specifically formulated, designed, and cultivated to ROCK the Emerald Coast.

JVC Fort Walton Beach Operations Manager Woofy Ramone stated, “ROCK 92.1 – The Gulf Coast Rock Alternative is just that, an ALTERNATIVE to what the market has had over the years.  ROCK 92.1 is being built with the Emerald Coast as it’s focus.  We’re going to play a vast library of all this market’s favorite Rock and guitar-driven Alternative songs.  At times, we’ll even throw in some regional and local music.  ROCK 92.1 will be LOCAL – focusing on events, charities, businesses, and organizations that benefit our community with people who live and work LOCALLY.”

JVC Florida Director of Programming Stevie DeMann added, “There is a clear need for a locally formatted alternative to what the Emerald Coast had to listen to over the years.  You’ll hear Foo Fighters, Van Halen, Eddie’s son Wolfgang’s band MAMMOTH WVH, Shinedown, The Offspring, Led Zeppelin, Incubus… there will be a HUGE playlist on ROCK 92.1.  Basically, if you love it, we’re going to play it.  Woofy Ramone’s 30+ years of Emerald Coast ROCK expertise will be leading ROCK 92.1 – and we’re so excited his familiar voice will be on the air Monday through Friday 10am-2pm.  And I can’t stress enough that JVC’s desire for all things LOCAL will be evident on ROCK 92.1 with local personalities, local contests, and local winners!”

“JVC’s commitment to the Emerald Coast and all of our markets is to grow our culture of great LOCAL radio for our listeners and clients,” JVC Executive Shane Reeve says. “The addition of ROCK 92.1 is what the Emerald Coast has been begging for – a REAL ALTERNATIVE that plays GREAT ROCK music.  At JVC, we pride ourselves on the ability to super-serve local clients – that includes our listeners and businesses with the best local events, promotions, and results.  (JVC CEO) John Caracciolo and I are so excited for the future on the Emerald Coast and can’t wait to see the impact of ROCK 92.1 on the market!”
