Rock music returned to Augusta’s airwaves Monday afternoon at 5 p.m., and fans were celebrating on the Facebook page of Beasley Broadcast Group’s 95 Rock, radio station WCHZ-FM.
Talk radio replaced rock back in August on 95.1 FM, with the rock music bumped back on the dial to 93.1 FM, a signal many listeners complained was too weak to pick up in Augusta. Until Monday, listeners were urged to stream the station online at 95rock.com.
No immediate reason was given for the changeover, but Producer Chuck Williams thanked listeners on the Facebook page for their support and patience “as we worked through all of this.”
“Could NOT have done it without all of you,” Williams wrote.
Facebook posts from listeners on WCHZ’s page indicated the station could be heard in Augusta, Edgefield County, S.C., and Waynesboro, Ga., but not Salley.
