WLRN is stepping up to fill the classical music void in South Florida’s radio airwaves.
Beginning Aug. 10, the media company will change its HD-2 station from its current alternative news and talk format to classical music 24/7. The station is available through HD-capable radios, wlrn.org and iPhone and Android apps.
WLRN made the change after the Minnesota-based American Media Group announced earlier this month it was selling its three Classical South Florida radio stations to the religious broadcasting company American Public Media for $21.7 million.
“We understand the importance and impact classical music has in this community,” said WLRN general manager John LaBonia in a statement. “We provided it before Classical South Florida arrived in 2007 and we are happy to provide the service again.”
