Iconic Jacksonville Radio Shopping Channel WJXR Closing After Almost 30 Years

A live, call-in shopping show that’s been on the radio in Jacksonville for nearly three decades will make its final sale Wednesday night.

The Bargain Channel Program was an on-air staple of WJXR 92.1 FM since 1985. Every day of the week, from 6 a.m. until midnight, you could buy anything and everything from necklaces, to cruises, from laptops to toilet paper and bars of soap.

But the station was sold recently and its new owners say they plan to change its format New Years Eve night —although they haven’t said to what.

Not to panic, faithful Bargain Channel buyers.

The Bargain Channel has announced it is starting a new, more abbreviated, radio shopping show on 102.3 FM and 1600 AM The Beach which will debut next month during morning and evening drive time.
