Statement Of Policy 

It is WBXO’ policy (overall objective) to reach and serve as many possible listeners and to provide them with news, information and family oriented entertainment. We provide listeners locally with service on 630 & 1610 kHz; 102.5 Stereo (FM) and world-wide listeners over the internet via 


In keeping with the tradition of WBXO, our music programming consists of Classic Rock music re-defined with specialty programming on weekends and other day parts as needed as it has been since our inception in 1972. Our music is aimed at people who have a varied interest in classic rock music and we try to accommodate our listening audience. As part of our goal to provide our listeners the highest grade programming we employ a Music Director, whose primary responsibility is to work with our air talent in selecting music, listen to the public demands for certain artists, etc and to compile a diverse musical format for air. 


WBXO’s format is geared to provide as much airtime as possible for music programming. We allocate 2 hours per week for public service programming not including, Presidential speeches or rebuttals. A typical hour of broadcasting will consist of the following:, music or entertainment programming interspersed with no more than two minutes of commercial breaks. WBXO’s minute-by-minute planning is kept somewhat flexible to provide ample time to air some of the longer music selections so common to the classic rock field. 

Public Service Announcements 

WBXO accepts outside written and produced Public Service Announcements for air provided they are submitted by not-for-profit organizations and conforms to our family oriented values. We broadcast both national foundations and local community interests as part of our way of keeping the public informed. Along with 60 or 30 second announcements, we also broadcast brief 5 and 10 second spots where whenever they can fit into an hour’s programming. We do require a 30 day if a certain announcement 

is requested to be broadcast on or before a specific date. Such requests should be sent to the Community Services Director. We do not accept any payment for any such broadcast as this is direct violation of FCC Rules and Regulations. An average of 4 minutes of Public Service Announcements is broadcast every hour. In no way will anyone, whether an employee of WBXO or non-employee be permitted to “plug” and merchandise or service with which he or she is associated, on the air without the permission of the programming department. Failure to comply with this rule is grounds for dismissal for employees and may inhibit the inclusion of future public service announcements from the offending organization.
