Aircheck: WFLA, 11/5/1992

It’s Jay Marvin’s last show at WFLA on November 5th, 1992. A couple of nights prior, Bill Clinton became president-elect of the United States, defeating incumbent George W. Bush and independent Ross Perot.

This (sort of) marked an end of an era for the biggest talk station in Tampa Bay, as the station went more conservative after Jay’s departure. They would return to former glory for a few years in 1996 when Bob Lassiter returned to 970, but he only lasted a little over three years before the station went all-conservative again.

WFLA went from music to all talk in 1986, and have stayed that way ever since. It’s the current local home for the nationally syndicated shows of Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, and Todd Schnitt among others, plus a plethora of mostly financial call-in shows over the weekend.
