WGRV-LP (93.1 FM) was a radio station consisting of a series of low power transmitters throughout the Brevard/Indian River area of Florida. This non-commercial station broadcast a smooth jazz format supported by its listeners. The station was licensed to Melbourne, Florida, USA, and served the Melbourne area. The station was owned by Brevard Youth Education Broadcasting Corporation.[1] The station was a network of low power transmitters in the Brevard area broadcasting on 93.1 (WGRV-LP), 103.3 Palm Bay, 103.3 in the Cocoa Beach area, 102.3 in the Cape Canaveral area and 100.7 FM in the Rockledge area.

History[edit]

The station was originally assigned the call letters WCEE-LP on June 18, 2002. On March 31, 2005, the station changed its call sign to WGRZ-LP. On March 12, 2007 it changed again to the current WGRV. However, as of March 25, 2013 the station went off the air and has filed a STA to remain dark for six months.[2]

As of November 9, 2013, WGRV-LP remains silent, with no immediate plans to resume broadcasting. The station is currently listed in the FCC database as "licensed and silent." [3] According to a message on the station's web site, the station is off the air indefinitely due to life changes and health issues among the station's key staff.

As of July 2014, WGRV-LP has been deleted and its license cancelled by the FCC. The record can be viewed using the FCC's CDBS station search tool using the call letters DWGRV-LP. The "D" at the front stands for "deleted". The FM translators that were part of the network are still licensed, but since they have also been silent for more than a year, the law requires that the FCC delete them as well unless they have switched inputs and are rebroadcasting another station.

Awards[edit]

The station was nominated for the Smooth Jazz Radio Station Of The Year by Radio and Records magazine in 2006 and 2007.[4][5]
