Press Release: WIXY1260Online Moves to Cleveland, Ohio

There's No Place Like Home

WIXY1260Online is proud to announce that, on February 3rd, it has moved its main studios to a larger, more modern facility that will serve our needs well into the future. The new home city of WIXY1260Online is Cleveland, Ohio - the same home city to our predecessors, WIXY 1260 AM. We're very proud of our new home and can't wait to share photos with you! Stay tuned to our Gallery Page at WIXY1260Online.com for the photos.


A Heartfelt Thanks

A heartfelt thanks to all of our wonderful staff - this 6+ year journey has been amazing and the move to our new, improved studios would not be possible without their incredible talent and dedication. Likewise, without our awesome fans, we wouldn't even be writing messages like this.

First and foremost, WIXY1260Online has always been, and always will be, about the music and making radio what it always should be - fun, free and non-pretentious. We are committed to not junking up our airwaves, social media and website with excessive advertising or irrelevant information.


We realize that some would like to hear us on an FM/AM band, but the reality of radio (and the costs associated with doing business) make terrestrial radio less feasible and realistic (as evidenced by the troubles unfolding for our large corporate counterparts). We strive to provide you with more listening options than just a box that picks up one signal and drowns you with advertising for that privilege. We are always happy to work with potential listeners at our live events, and through our Support Page, to get you the help you need to listen, wherever you go. At WIXY1260Online, The Future of Radio is Now!

About WIXY1260Online

From 1965 to 1976, WIXY 1260 AM was an incredible force in the Cleveland, Ohio, radio market, and has never been forgotten. Now, two WIXY fans from Cleveland, with a great set of volunteers, have given the station new life...on the Internet. WIXY1260Online has been active since October, 2011, and offers the same high-energy music and fast pace that made the original WIXY a legend in the annals of Top 40 Radio! The top hits and local favorites that were played on WIXY 1260 AM can be heard once again at www.wixy1260online.com. All songs are in a high quality format, many of which are available in stereo for the first time, and can be heard for free, 24/7/365.

Greetings WIXY Friends,

How does this affect the listener?  We are transitioning all of our listening links on our website and partner websites, as well as our mobile App, to point to our new listening streams.  As a result, you may need to refresh your Internet browsers and update any bookmarks to be linked to the updated streamsThe current links will be expiring soon, so you may no longer hear us if you don't follow the updated links on our Listen Page at www.wixy1260online.com/listen.html.
 
 
THE LAST BROADCAST
Thanks to all who tuned in for our Last Broadcast from our Lakewood, Ohio, studios on Friday, February 2nd.  It was a great day of live shows capped off with an outstanding show by Tony Z.  While we're no longer broadcasting from Lakewood, we still maintain a presence there and will continue our partnership with Cap & Corks as an official prize and merchandise pickup location. 
 
 
THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME
Things have been quite busy for us and a lot of energy is being expended as we build on our success and hope to finish the setup of our new studios soon.  We're very excited with our new pad and can't wait to share photos with you.  If you're a regular listener, you know we've been broadcasting from our new Cleveland studios since Saturday, February 3rd.  We've set up a temporary workstation for our DJs, but we'll be settled into our spot soon - once the WIXY Purple paint dries.  Stay tuned!
