WJQB - A History
WJQB-FM 106.3 Spring Hill – Carl Marcocci’s WGUL-FM 106.3 became WJQB in January 2005 when it switched from “Music Of Your Life” to Scott Shannon’s “True Oldies” format, a syndicated radio service distributed by satellite and hosted by national radio personality Scott Shannon.
WJQB was previously located in the Fountains Shopping Center on U.S. 19 North in Palm Harbor but today (2009) operates from 13825 U.S. 19 in Hudson. “True Oldies 106.3” is owned by WGUL Inc. and is licensed to Spring Hill. It broadcasts a non-directional pattern with 25,000 watts from a transmitter/tower site east of U.S. 19 on Highway 50 (Cortez Boulevard) near Weeki Wachee, and covers the northern Tampa Bay area, including Hernando and Citrus Counties.
Other names in WJQB history include David Marcocci (GM-2005), Richard Spires, Steve Schurdell (managing partner-2009), Denny Bateman (production director), Bobby O’Shea (host of the “Doo Wop Shop”), Trevor Joe Lennon (mornings-2008), and Cem Maier (general sales manager).
