Local investors step up to keep the community informed and connected
Heart of Virginia Communications, LLC announced it has purchased WFLO-AM from Educational Media Foundation (EMF). EMF purchased WFLO-AM and FM along with its tower from Colonial Broadcasting Co. earlier this year. The new owners are working on attaining a new FM frequency to go along with the AM station. Listeners can expect to tune in to WFLO via 870 AM or livestream on December 1, 2022.
"Farmville has always been a radio town and we are so excited to re-launch WFLO for the people of Farmville and the surrounding area,” said Chris Brochon. “Our goal is to preserve the history and authenticity of the station and provide the community with the local news, information and entertainment they deserve."
Heart of Virginia Communications plans to bring back WFLO’s popular programming that has proven
successful for decades. Listeners will again hear a variety of music including rock, soul, beach music, the
classics, gospel, and modern hits across genres. The award-winning talk show “Call Flo” will return in full force
for community members to call in live and “unfiltered” to ask questions and voice their opinions and concerns.
Some new programs will be added to the lineup. Finally, WFLO will bring listeners critical local news and
information that affects Farmville and the region.
