WMIR-FM was impacted by the devisataing fire that destroyed several office spaces on the Parkway Professional Building, at the corner of Grissom Parkway and 48th Avenue North in Myrtle Beach.
The fire ravaged our offices and studios shortly after 8pm on Tuesday, October 26, resulting in the loss of audio and broadcast capabilities for almost 24 hours. While our studios are a complete loss, we managed to patch audio from our Bolivia, North Carolina transmitter location to our Myrtle Beach and Georgetown transmitter locations. This means that while we do not have a physical sstudio right now, we are still able to broadcast remotely.
While our FM signals have returned, we are not able to stream on the iHeart Radio App or our website for the time being. However, you can listen to our sister station WHGM Gold, located in Maryland, also on the iHeart Radio App HERE.
We would like to thank the first responders from the Myrtle Beach Fire Department who worked tirelessly through the night and into the next morning to extinguish the flames and assist businesses tenants in retrieving items from their offices.
