Weigel Broadcasting Co., the creators of MeTV Memorable Entertainment Television, announce their latest broadcast venture with the debut of 87.7 MeTV FM on WRME-LP/Chicago. The new station will bring a distinctive "Me Music" sound featuring a deep playlist of Classic Pop from the 1960s through 1980s with artists such as Carly Simon, James Taylor, The Eagles, Elton John, The Carpenters, Motown superstars, America, Neil Diamond and more. 87.7 MeTV FM will be MeTV's companion for audio format.

"87.7 MeTV FM will differ from the current 'Classic Hits' format by playing a much broader range of music skewing on the pop/softer side including singer/songwriters, album tracks and hits deemed Oldies by some programmers but considered gold by our target audience," according Neal Sabin, the architect of the MeTV FM format. "This is "Me Music"- memorable, easy music for everyone."

The station will be broadcasting on WRME-LP (new call letters effective 2-23), a Venture Technologies television station that can be heard at 87.7 on the FM radio dial.
