Bob Levy Broadcast Center Dedicated in Toms River
The new Bob Levy Broadcast Center was dedicated on Friday morning.
Located on the fourth floor of Townsquare Media's headquarters at 8 Robbins Street in downtown Toms River, the center houses the studios of 94.3 The Point WJLK-FM, 105.7 The Hawk WCHR-FM, 92.7 WOBM-FM, WOBM AM 1160/1310 as well as the WOBM Newsroom.
The Broadcast Center is named for legendary local radio personality Bob Levy, who has been a fixture on WOBM since January of 1968. Levy currently hosts the daily morning show, Bob and Marianne in the Morning, with his wife on WOBM AM as well as the Sunday morning talk show Topic A which broadcasts on both WOBM AM and FM.
The dedication of the new Bob Levy Broadcast Center marks the second time that the radio host has been honored this way. The original Bob Levy Broadcast Center was located at WOBM's previous home on Route 9 in Bayville and was dedicated to Levy in 2010. In early 2013 Townsquare Media completed a long-term plan to centralize its broadcasting operations and business offices to its current location at the corner of Main and Water streets in Toms River, the former Ocean County Observer building.
