.Joe Bourdow, general manager of RadioStPete, said: “We are civic-minded and we like to help promote activities in St. Petersburg and around Tampa Bay.” 

He added: “Tampa Bay Downs is like a hidden jewel. We will introduce it and horse racing to some new fans.”
In addition to the Internet, RadioStPete and other Internet-only stations may be accessed on iPads and on many cell phones.
RadioStPete is a 24-hour station with its  office and studio in downtown St. Petersburg.
Its programming is built around national and local news, public service announcements, civic and entertainment event announcements, interviews, public affairs and music.
The station identifies its music mix as “today’s hits and yesterday’s favorites.” Each day, it has programs devoted to recordings by Tampa Bay area artists.
RadioStPete’s audience is primarily in St. Petersburg and environs. It also has a growing number of listeners around the United States and overseas.

HRFLA feels that the RadioStPete live broadcasts are an important service to fans who cannot get to Tampa Bay Downs or other pari-mutuels that carry its signal and for those who do not have advance deposit wagering accounts for telecasts of races.
