89.5 WMFV, sister station to 90.7 WMFE, covers The Villages, Leesburg and The Golden Triangle (Eustis, Mount Dora and Tavares), and was officially born on March 3, 2018.
WMFV President and General Manager LaFontaine Oliver is soliciting feedback to build a programming schedule for the station by spending time in the community and through an online survey.
“There is such a variety of news, music and entertainment programming out there that is available to serve the needs of public radio audiences,” Oliver said. “Taking a bit more time allows us to pound the pavement to survey the folks in our listening area in order to truly understand their needs and tastes.”
“Our goal is to create a station that will resonate with the community and so we have to be very intentional.”
In January 2018, Community Communications Inc. (DBA 90.7 WMFE) closed on the purchase of the radio station license for WKSG-FM 89.5 (The Boulevard) in Cedar Creek, just north of The Villages. More information about the purchase is here. The new call letters – WMFV – align with the WMFE brand, with the “V” as a nod to the new station’s focus on The Villages, Leesburg and The Golden Triangle.
