WRXB to convert to all gospel on Aug. 20
Known as St. Petersburg's "Legendary WRXB," the radio station at 1590 AM on the dial will go all gospel 24 hours a day, seven days a week, beginning Aug. 20.
Maurice Sebastian, WRXB's program director, said the station tried an all-gospel format in the past, but returned to its current variety format.
Sebastian said the aim of the change is to focus the station on a niche that could bolster its stature in the Tampa Bay area.
