You will notice some big changes when tuning in to VOCM radio this week.
Station officials say the changes are based on listener feedback from the last few months.
As of today, VOCM has brought music back as part of its programming format. VOCM’s Program Director Aiden Hibbs says “news and information will still be the main focus of the station,” but that “our listeners made it clear they also wanted a mix of music with that information.”
Hibbs says the station is returning to its roots with a focus on “local programming.” He says mainland programs have been removed from the schedule altogether.
Locally produced shows like Your Money with BDO and The Law Show with Butler Wills and Estates will move to better time slots on Saturday afternoon. They will also be posted as podcasts on iTunes and at VOCM.com.
Hibbs says “VOCM’s long history and connection with the community is one the station values greatly” and was “the impetus behind the changes.”
