Host and producer Tom Hantzarides announced that effective in January 2017 he will begin broadcasting his radio show, “GET OUT! South Florida” at 7 p.m. Saturdays on Alpha Media’s 850AM WFTL. With 50,000 watts of power, the show will be heard from Port St. Lucie to Key West.
“This is an important move for the show,” said Hantzarides, a radiophile since he was 17. “Having less power has been a drawback because listeners aren’t always able to get the station in their homes or cars. With 850AM they’ll be able to receive a clear signal all over South Florida, indoors or out.”
“It also increases the number of locations from which we can broadcast live shows like the Kravis Center or South Florida college campuses,” he added. “With the increased coverage, we will expand our live remote broadcast abilities to cities that were not possible previously.”
According to Hantzarides, “GET OUT! South Florida,” which originally launched in 2014 as “Get Out Palm Beach,” will continue to be live, with current news, discussion, interviews, and more that matter to the LGBT community in South Florida and beyond.
“We are the only terrestrial-radio LGBT radio show in the country and will always show the positive impact the LGBT community has made in the state,” said Hantzarides. “’GET OUT! South Florida’ LGBT radio is the LGBT community’s radio show. I hope it can be of service to everyone.”
