NextMedia's 98.7 Will FM in the Wilmington, NC market has been moved to a much-weaker signal in the adjacent New Bern/Morehead City, NC market.
The call letters for 98.7 Will FM changed from WILT to WLGD on March 16, 2008, which served as a hint that something was up there. Then, effective March 31, the Will FM format went to 104.5 WSTK, a Class A signal with a Spanish format that recently upgraded to Class C1. The move saw Spanish move to 98.7 as "La Gran D", with the idea that the signal will cover a range with a population of 130,000 Hispanics.
In a related note, NextMedia had a Variety Hits signal on in New Bern/Morehead City, NC with SAM 105.1 (WSSM), which flipped to Standards as "105.1 The Coast" on November 1, 2007.
