One of the few public radio owned Oldies stations will sign-off for good on Friday, January 7 as Grand Valley State University will cease operations of “Real Oldies” 1480 WGVU Grand Rapids/850 WGVS Muskegon MI.
WGVU/WGVS had flipped to Oldies in 2009, becoming at the time the only public radio operation programming a full-time Oldies format. WGVU Public Media intends to surrender both AM licenses and sell the real estate properties hosting their towers. The station will also cease its streaming and simulcast on 88.5 WGVU-HD2 with the shut-off of the AMs.
