The (online) Wave loses its’ PD
October 9, 2010
Elyria-Lorain Broadcasting’s smooth jazz/new age WNWV/107.3 HD2, aka “The Wave,” is now without a program director – and its’ last local personality.
Former PD/afternoon voice Mark Ribbins’ last day at the Elyria-based, Cleveland-targeted station was on Thursday, September 30. Mark was the last person held over from WNWV’s primary channels’ previous format, which was flipped to adult album alternative in late December. Ribbins stayed on board to program the smooth jazz format online and 107.3 HD2, in addition to hosting afternoon drive duties. He had been a part of WNWV since 1998, and previously worked at then-gospel WRDZ/1260, which is now (for now) Radio Disney-owned WWMK.
The smooth jazz format with continue, without any personalities, for the immediate future.
