Here’s the story of three guys from Florida who moved to the New River Valley in SouthWest Virginia and are reviving an old local radio station.
WNRV is located in Giles County, half way between Narrows and Pearisburg. The station’s broadcast coverage area should cover from Princeton, W.Va., to Christiansburg. The format they are adopting for the station is all bluegrass, all the time. Except on Sundays when they will air broadcasts from local preachers.
The story is in today’s issue of the Roanoke Times newspaper. The station begins broadcasting this Sunday. The story profiles the three principles involved, their backgrounds, and why they wanted to start a bluegrass radio station.
If you live in the area you might want to start tuning in to WNRV 990AM, The Ridge, for your bluegrass fix.
UPDATE 7/3: WNRV now has a web site set up, though it is still under construction. Check them out at www.wnrvradio.com.
