JVC Media of Florida, headed by John Caracciolo, continues its growth by adding four radio stations in Fort Walton Beach, FL. JVC has entered into a definitive agreement with Community Broadcasters LLC to purchase four FM signals in Fort Walton Beach including WECQ, WHWY, WWAV and WZLB. This will bring JVC's Florida operations to a total of eleven radio outlets including three in Orlando and four in Gainesville-Ocala, in addition to the company's five FM stations in Nassau-Suffolk, NY.

JVC CEO John Caracciolo said, "We are honored and privileged to welcome WECQ, WHWY, WWAV, and WZLB and its staff to the JVC family. The prior ownership was committed to community service on the Emerald Coast, high quality broadcasting and creating an excellent work environment for its staff, and we will continue that work. We are tremendously impressed with the Fort Walton Beach market and the remarkable growth and resilience of the area even in these unprecedented times."

JVC Executive Shane Reeve will oversee the integration of the Fort Walton Beach stations into the company and will be responsible for the staffing and operation of the facilities. Reeve is no stranger to the area having managed clusters in Fort Walton Beach and Pensacola. He added, "I'm thrilled JVC is bringing our live and local approach to the Florida Panhandle and Emerald Coast."
