WHEO-AM 1270 Stuart, Virginia Signing Off for Good

April 9, 2020

Another independent hometown radio station bites the dust. WHEO-AM 1270 in Stuart, Virginia will be signing off permanently the end of this month. Patrick County will be losing it’s only radio station.

Reason? You guessed it: ad revenue has declined to the point where it is no longer feasible for the station to operate. WHEO has been on the air since 1959, providing local news and information. Sadly, 55 years of broadcasting will come to an abrupt end this coming Sunday.
