WCPV (101.3 FM) is a radio station broadcasting a mainstream rock format. Licensed to Essex, New York, USA, the station serves the Burlington-Plattsburgh area. The station is currently owned by Vox Radio Group and features programing from Premiere Radio Networks.[1]. WCPV was simulcast on WCVR 102.1 in Randolph, Vermont. WCPV has always been known on air as "Champ" since signing on in 1994, and was home to the well known and extremely popular "Corm and the Coach" morning show until 2008.

History

The station was randomly assigned the call sign of WVZM on 1992-09-02. on 1993-07-22, the station changed its call sign to WDOT, and signed on with 1994-08-17 the current WCPV,[2] By 2008, after 14 years as a classic rock station and regarding ownership change from Clear Channel Communications to Vox Radio Group, WCPV moved to a mainstream rock format to go up against Hall Communications' WBTZ, leaving WIZN (also owned by Hall Communications) as the only classic rock station. Another current-based rock station also arrived this time, as WLFE-FM (now WIER) acquired a more active rock format by 2008.
