Another part of NYC radio history is going away - iconic pop station WPLJ is shutting down.

The longstanding New York radio station that for nearly 50 years has sent pop and rock hits across the Hudson River and broadcast throughout North and Central New Jersey announced Wednesday it will cease operation May 31. The Cumulus Media-owned station was sold to Christian broadcaster Educational Media Foundation in February, and the new Christian contemporary station K-Love (WKLV) will take over the 95.5 channel June 1, RadioInsight reports.

Not for nothin’, but a Christian Contemporary station in New York City is going to go over like a fart in an elevator. They’ll be changing formats within a year, or risk becoming one of the biggest revenue losers in NYC radio history.
