Following the departure of Howard Stern to Sirius in December 2005, WOCL’s Modern Rock format fell on hard times. Drew Garabo and Savannah were brought in following their departures from crosstown FM Talker WTKS to host mornings, but the format floundered behind 101.1 WJRR for the young male audience it desired. Finally on Friday, January 4, 2008 at 10:00am the station dropped Modern Rock and began stunting with Bill Drake’s “History of Rock and Roll” until the following Thursday, January 10. That day at 12:40pm, the station began a year-by-year montage similar to the one used by sister WCBS-FM New York the previous summer, which led up to the launch at 1:05pm and 9 seconds of “Sunny 105.9 – Orlando’s Greatest Hits”.
Power 105.9 was one of the many Rhythmic Oldies stations that AMFM debuted across the U.S in the late 90’s. And, like most of those outlets, Power 105.9 was unable to maintain any sort of ratings success it achieved initially. As part of the AMFM/Clear Channel merger, Power 105.9 was sold to CBS/Infinity. CBS/Infinity saw the hole for a Modern Rock outlet in Market #39…following several hours of spooky stunting, “O-Rock 105-Nine, Orlando’s New Rock Alternative” made its debut at Noon on Halloween 2000.
