Celebrating The History Of WFLZ/Tampa

This week eQB honors WFLZ/Tampaís 25th Anniversary as FMQB revisits a special tribute feature to the legendary Power Pig. The article originally published in our August magazine issue in 2009 when the station celebrated its 20th Anniversary. The issue and the feature itself remain one of our most popular and most requested to date...with good reason. As the station celebrates its Silver Anniversary the resounding legacy of WFLZ remains unparalleled! From its early, rebellious years as The Power Pig through the New Music Revolution and Hit Music Channel days, the station has spawned scores of successful radio pros who have formed a seamless fraternal bond that remains unconditional. We narrate the story of WFLZ through the voices that have served the station well over the years. Itís a profoundly significant tale that recalls an era of radio that has simply vanished in time, but a spirit that marches on still 25 years and counting! [more]
